How to Make a Bookcase Dollhouse

I was really excited to be asked to create a project for recently. It went live yesterday and it's been getting a lovely response over on Facebook and Twitter, so I thought I eke even more mileage out of it by sharing it here too!

I also thought I'd share a few more details than I was able to in the Wayfair post - as in - more close-ups of the rooms that weren't featured in the original piece.

Like, the nursery;

The living room (with a dodgy bit of wallpaper that has since been fixed),

and the kitchen, with Mammy-doll having  healthy snack while she chats on the phone.

It really was the most enjoyable project to put together and really, it could be done with any kind of bookcase. Even one shelf of a bookcase, if needs be!

Lile and Sábha, love playing with it and have since added a roof garden for the animals to live in.

I really hope they get years of enjoyment from it. I know I will!

  1. It's delightful! What a brilliant and simple idea. I love the furniture :)

    1. Thanks so much! I LOVED making it. So easy and such a fun result. The furniture actually came from Lidl, if you can believe it - I'd been hoarding it for ages, but it might be worth keeping an eye out for it if it comes around again!

  2. That is so amazing and beautiful - you are so talented!

  3. I love this, it is so beautiful.
    As Office Mum said, you really are so talented!
