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. 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!
Like I mentioned in my introductory post, I furnished the entire dollhouse with things I found around my own house.
I will publish tutorials (when I have time) on the furniture, which can be scaled for Barbie also.

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.
