“Do you wanna build a doll house….
It would be for a good cause…
You can put your spin on it.
Any way… any way you see fit cause….
To help a place with kids…
Won’t you please say yeeeeees?
Do you wanna to build a doll house…
Yes, it needs to be a doll house….
Intrigued was an understatement. Doll houses have a special place in my heart.
Growing up, we use to make our own out of stacked cardboard boxes. We’d cut the windows out, use wrapping paper for the walls, fabric for curtains, and the Barbies would be all set!
Well… here’s my chance to relive a little of that childhood once again… but this time, we’re going upcycled with stuff from thrift stores.
Everything in this picture was .99 each. And I’ll be hand making lots of accessories.
Do you see the windows? How about the big screen TV? And even part of the bed…
Goodness… I may have to locate my sewing machine!
I said the S word… 😀
Let’s hope hot glue does the trick for what I need.
The idea behind the dollhouse was to utilize a bookshelf. Because I’d like to build it Barbie scale, I think this lightweight storage rack will work out great! With adjustable shelves and being solid wood, I plan to somewhat mimic features in my own home. I hope! 🙂
How unique is this challenge?!
Not only is it going to a place that works with children in some capacity, it’s a neat way to create yet something unique that anyone else can do for little money.
Doyou wannawatch me build a doll house?
An upcycled thrift store doll house…
Ok, fiiiine! 😀
Disclosure: I’ve partnered with the good folks at Porch to create a dollhouse out of a bookcase, to donate for a good cause. I’m donating my time for this project, because this one spoke to me. All my ideas are my own.
