“WOW! Did you see this?!”
“Funky Junk Interiors is creating this super cool upcycled dollhouse out of all reclaimed finds! And it says here, it’s going to be donated to a place that works with kids!”
“Wow… can I see?”
“Ok, that’s just cool! Check out the fireplace… love reclaimed wood and crates!
And it even has a flickering fireplace with a battery operated tea light!”
And how about that coffee mat? It’s made out of a woven placemat, stencilled with parts of her “National Coffee” stencil kit… we could totally do that!”
“You don’t have to ask me twice! Lemme just go grab my boots and purse.”
“Hmmm… this one? I need room to really pack it home…”
“I think we need to bring these cool Imax Essentials 3 Piece Storage Boxes from Wayfair instead where we keep our main storage under the house! They’ll hold enough junk!”
“Oh hey… I just remembered… we have more purses down there… let’s check it out!”
“Oh wow, I totally forgot I had all these purses… here’s my hot pink number!”
“I know! And here’s my cool distressed leather one! Perfection! Once a junker…”
But… I’m having second thoughts…”
“Thank goodness for BLOGS! Fine by me! Let’s do it!”

“I missed that! I was busy drooling over those stacked crate shelves, stocked with plates made from some moulding pieces. And that little upside down box made into an island! That sure looked a lot like ours…”
“Pizza’s pipin’ hot on the butcher block island! Let’s dig in!”
“Ok, go have a seat and I’ll brew up that pot of coffee.”

“Oh, this recipe nailed it. It’s amazing!”
“No kidding… thank goodness for BLOGS, right?!”
“I know! And I just love the fact that the furniture was made out of a few thrift store finds and scrap wood.
I really hope that post inspires others to set their kids up with a project like that. I’d bet it’s one of those projects that would never have to end…”
“So, do you wanna go out now?”
“AHA! That’s what I thought!
If you’re just tuning in, I donated my time making this dollhouse and furniture which will be donated to a place that works with children. (yet to be determined)
The dollhouse was created from a bookcase. There is currently no back on it, in hopes that it can be used as a double sided doll house for ample play. Walls via white painted wood planks, chalkboard or whiteboard may be added if that design works better once house is placed.
And aren’t those Barbies adorable?! I couldn’t stop with just one! 🙂
All the furniture was created from either reclaimed wood or upcycled thrift store finds. All stencilled images were from my own Old Sign Stencils collection.
I’m really going to miss my little friends and endless creating. And it’s true. This is a project that NEVER has to end for kids. The creativity is endless and I found it hard to stop!
If you’d like to see how the furniture was made, let me know in comments, and I’ll build a post showing how I put everything together.
Thanks Porch and Wayfair, this was a BLAST!

Disclosure: I partnered with the good folks at Porch and Wayfair to create a dollhouse out of a bookcase, to donate for a good cause. They provided a materials budget, then I donated my time for this project, because this one spoke to me. All my ideas are my own. The source list shares some affiliate links. The stencil store is my own.
