This is the story of my $2 thrift store dollhouse makeover and how I furnished it for nothing.
After spending so little on the house itself, I couldn’t bring myself to throw a bunch of expensive dollhouse furniture inside.
Once again, it will be revealed just how much of a junk hoarder I am, but I am confident anyone could pull something like this off with a few months of saving recyclables.
When I was little, one Christmas my parents and my auntie collaborated to create a totally awesome dollhouse for him, and I loved it SO MUCH! ANYway, I loved nothing so much as creating accessories and furniture and things for the dollhouse.
Hi Vicky, I didn’t make any people for the dollhouse because my daughter has like a thousand plastic figurines (think Mickey Mouse and friends) that I figured she would use anyway. You could always paint up some simple peg dolls that are available at craft stores like I did here. This is really amazing, you have inspired us to get our old doll house out of the basement and revamp it.
I love your dedication to using things you’ve found around your home, your dollhouse looks like it belongs to The Borrowers! I'm not an expert at DIY dollhouse furniture, but I can share what I've made and what I've learned.
I'll try to explain things assuming you have nothing but 'shop class' experience in woodworking.
I saw a headboard at my local Habitat for Humanity Restore for $15 and thought it would make an excellent dollhouse. I may be stealing your fabric wallpapering idea for my little girl’s dollhouse, which also came from the thrift store.
