My daughter wants a dream doll house, but a dream doll house comes with a dream price, so I made her one. I invested $40.00 in a cubic shelf unit and raided my recyle bin for cardboard items and other useful finds. I also bought some magazines from the thrift store to cut out backgrounds and other pictures for the rooms. Then I added some old floor pieces to some of the floor area.Also the top level is the entire box the shelving unit came out of.
Note-shelves are NOT already assembled.
Most of the supplies used:
- cubic shelf unit
- cardboard boxes different sizes (Beds, couch, washer,dryer, etc.)
- juice box (shower)
- small empty packages for sinks
- magazines clipping (room backdrop,wall art, food for kitchen and more)
- sale add clipping (Tv and other)
- old socks or old cloths (bed cover and furniture cover)
- hot glue gun
- strong tape
- paper towel rolls (top floor support beam and other)
- click lights and string lights
- craft paper (room decor)
- old calendars (room decor)
- small frame (dining table)
- doll house furniture (used what we already had)
- contact paper (top floor and shower)
- chalk board paint
- popsicles sticks (windows)
My daughter love her new doll house and I can upgrade the look when she is ready for a change. We added a Christmas Tree, so her dolls can celebrate this pass Christmas with her. The kitchen is still under construction but useable. Parking garage and pool area are also work in progress. The doll house stands 4ft 5 1/2 inches tall.
