DIY Dollhouse

We’re flipping a house! A doll house!

Welcome to our new journey! We’re finally flipping a house, guys! Are you excited? So are we. It’s a mini house a.k.a. a dollhouse but same thing kinda, right? I know this might seem kind of funny or weird to some people but I think it’s pretty cool. I first saw a dollhouse on @mandimakes Instagram and thought it was so cool because she makes her own doll furniture! You can see the furniture she makes on @mandimakesminis on Instagram!

Mandi is also doing a kickstarter to raise money to start her mini furniture company!! Go girl! She’s amazing at it and I hope I see her in Target soon! Go check out her kickstarter where you can pre-buy her sets of furniture and even DIY tutorials. I’ll be getting some furniture for my dollhouse!

Mandi’s dollhouse skills:

Granted, Mandi has kids but there’s something so fun and therapeutic about redoing a house… even for adults! Mike was a little thrown off when I said I seriously wanted a dollhouse. Once I showed him Mandi’s dollhouse stuff he was totally into it. It’s obviously a wreck right now but check it out! Try to picture it redone 🙂

I’m planning on redoing the dollhouse and maybe just making furniture for it which would be amazing if I wanted to design my own furniture one day. I could also redo it and donate it or save it for my future children if we decide to have kids. I guess I’ll just see where the dollhouse journey goes.

I love the mansard roof! This is what sold me on this $20 find! I can’t wait to put some real shingles on this baby! ha!


Thanks for touring the dollhouse and checking out all of the before photos! Do you buys have any ideas for design? Comment below. Mike and I can’t wait to start making some stuff!! Yay!

P.S. This is going to be a long running project. It’ll be a fun thing Mike and I do when we get some free time. 🙂

I hope this makes you want to get into some mini making! -xo, Cara
