A Dollhouse Fixer Upper

Happy December!!

I’m in full Christmas mode and happy that I feel kind of ahead of the game for once! (knocking-on-wood).

With that being said, I wanted to share one of my most favorite DIY Christmas gifts I have ever given; a refurbished dollhouse for my beautiful grand-niece Maeve.

This dollhouse was for sure a major Fixer Upper, but when I found it last year at a local thrift store, I could see the potential.

Let’s start with the before…

Look at that linoleum flooring….yikes!

After many weeks and a true labor of love, here is how this dollhouse fixer-upper turned out….

Egg-crate roof and clay chimney….

So, let me take you on a tour so we can get a closer look.

Upstairs bedroom.  A nautical, shabby theme of course!

Handkerchief drapes, balsa wood bed and nightstand.

Anchor and nautical knot wallpaper and a shiplap-popsicle stick accent wall…

Vintage spoon bowl sink and mini lights….

A metal soap dish bathtub…

Wallpapered living room, hardwood-popsicle-stick-floors throughout…

Handmade stairs…

Vintage handkerchief curtains and handmade cardboard and wooden fireplace….

Light and bright kitchen…

This was such a fun project and I loved working on this little house.  I was also beyond excited to give this to Maeve!  She really loves her first home.

Well, that’s the home tour!  Hope you like the transformation.

Before and after…

What are you working on this Christmas ??

Thanks for stopping by.
