After this Christmas, I now have a few extra gray hairs and even more bags under my eyes. All due to the fact that when Santa came up, my daughter asked for a dollhouse. At first I thought I was on the crazy boat and decided I was going to buy one of those kits from Hobby Lobby. Then when talking to my mom, she reminded me of my old dollhouse that was in the attic!
After taking one look at it, I realized this could be exactly what I was looking for and also a crazy cool heirloom to pass down. Is it perfect? No… Santa ran on a tight timeline, but is it perfect for us? Yes. I will never forget the moment she ran down on Christmas morning poked the little blue door open and said…. “Momma, there are little things in there!!” I chose an exterior of white with black shutters because I wanted it to match our house one day. Her favorite color right now is blue, so I did a little door just for her. The kitchen complete with brass fixtures and hardware. I told you guys brass was back 😉 For the Master Bedroom, I did things a designer mommy would like. An acrylic bed, pom pom sheets, a fiddle fig, and gold furry stools. This is the attic playroom for the “kids” in the house. I made a little tee-pee and a huge furry rug that is actually hiding my name that I “wrote” in the house as a little girl, and then scribbled out and said “not me”. I was a clever kid I tell ya. #ididntdoit See pic below. The girls’ room which has flamingos of course. Georgia loves mingos, they are all over her decor in her room, so I thought it was fitting and fun wall art. The Master Bath with the Shiplap feature wall. A bath that even Joanna Gaines would be proud of. And the garage which we painted out white. Who wouldn’t love a white garage floor? I would.Late Night Ship-lap making. Here are the progress photos…And here’s the before and after! To say she loved it would be an understatement. She is still talking about it to strangers and asking them to come over and play in her house. After all the hard work Tate and I put in we love watching her play and it will be such a joy to help her transform it over the years. Hope you have enjoyed following along with this project!
