Creations, CC’s Dollhouse

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Thank you so much for your visits, friendship and comments and letting me share

my sometimes wacky world with you

 

 

One of the highlights of our holiday was passing down my daughter’s dollhouse

to my granddaughter

 

 

This dollhouse was found at an estate sale by HH’s mother who lovingly fixed it up

and furnished it for my daughter years ago

Most of the furnishings are long gone, but I did manage to save the dollhouse over the years

With a few nails, a little glue and paint, it was ready for a new family

 

 

Old floral wallpaper, eyelet curtains and red “velvet” stairs called for a little redecorating

 

 

 

I painted one of the upstairs rooms “little girl” pink

 

 

 

A sponge cut into a square stamp added faux wallpaper and faux floor tiles

 

 

 

Do you see the toilet paper holder on the wall?  How cute is that!!

It is original to the house as is the framed artwork on the walls

 

 

 

I decorated this space to be the bathroom and baby’s room

 

 

 

The heart was part of a piece of old jewelry

 

 

 

 

I found these wonderful wooden furnishings on Amazon, details and links are at the end of the post

The brand is Hape Family {get it? Hap E, happy!}, and it’s really well made

It’s very kid friendly, doors and drawers open and it comes with cushions etc.

There is even a little rubber ducky in the bathroom set!

 

 

 

I left the wallpaper in the master bedroom and added a burlap rug to go with the felt rug that came with the set

 

 

 

The stairs were covered in a red cloth like material that I painted gray and covered with small rectangular glass tiles

 

 

 

It was a challenge getting into all these little spaces!

 

 

 

 

I painted over the wallpaper in the main room and painted “stones” on the hearth

 

 

 

 

A faux fire was painted in the fireplace

 

 

 

A mini canvas got some bright flowers

 

 

 

With edges painted just like on my large paintings

 

 

 

I used sticky dots to secure things to the wall

 

 

 

Dad and sister are lounging in the family room

 

 

 

 

He’s trying out all the chairs

 

 

 

 

Mom is busy in the kitchen

 

 

 

The baby plays with a gym on a floor mat while mom cooks

 

 

 

 

The mop in the corner and the china hutch are part of the few original pieces that were saved

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I gave the exterior of the house a coat of fresh white and painted the shutters gray

 

 

 

The windows have the original painted curtains

 

 

 

 

This adorable Family Pet set came with a dog, rabbit and cat, each with their own abode, bowl and food

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After painting the original green roof gray,

I added shingles using a square brush and a mix of black, white, and gray

 

 

 

 

I didn’t have much time to work on it, and it was a monster living in my kitchen since it was too cold to do it outside or in the garage, but CC & I can remodel it over time as she grows up

 

 

 

 

I gave her all the furnishings in their original boxes so she could look at the pictures

 

 

 

She went right to work moving in!

 

 

 

She even got some help from her cousin

 

 

 

She was a very Hap E little girl!

 

 

 

Thanks for taking the tour!

    Oh, my, Jenna, this dollhouse is what little girls’ dreams are made of! I had one about that size with wooden furniture and I still remember my delight seeing it under the tree when Christmas came (and that was 65 years ago when I was a little girl!) This was a true labor of love for you and your precious granddaughter will never forget it!

    Great mini house tour. Boy this post brought back many memories. My doll house was metal. It always bothered me that I had a two story house with NO stairway. You did a GREAT job remodeling this for your grand daughter. She’s very lucky.

    Love all your details and the LOVE you put into this little doll house! ❤️ I was always facinated with doll houses and all the imagination that goes into one! I had a Barbie house that brought hours of fun. I’m sure your granddaughter will enjoy your gift for years!! 😊

    Oh this is so inspiring. My daughter’s huge Barbie house is up in my playroom and so much is missing, but I could add to like you have. Of course my favorite parts are your paintings, the fire, and all of the fun things you did with paint.
    I just adore the toilet paper holder and the broom. However did those survive?

    SO adorable Jenna… I was waiting for your dollhouse transformation! Many Hap E memories and hours of fun will be created there by CC I’m sure! I can only imagine how tedious it must of been trying to paint inside those little cubbies. I love all your artistic touches and she will love lending a helping had to redecorate over time, especially since she’s a budding artist too. ♥

  24. How cool! My kids never got into doll houses. I remember when I was little, my mom helped us build a doll house straight into the closet we kept our toys in, that way it was always easy to put it away! It wasn’t an actual house, but a few shelves we added walls and decor to. Thanks for sharing at #HomeMattersParty
