Doll House Update!

I decided to rearrange the doll house so maybe we would have more space.
The doll house is now on the opposite side of the room

 The bath is now above Skyler's and Elle's room.

Martin got his wish and now has Penny right next door to his room.

My sewing area is now where the house used to be.


This is why...
This side of the room has a slightly higher ceiling and room enough for


For Lisa and Sarah!
Lisa and Sarah are in 8th grade and wanted their own room.
Mom decided they could use our attic.

Lisa and Sarah have a very cool style.

 The sofa becomes 2 twin beds.

Welcome Lisa and Sarah to the Savage dollhouse!

I LOVE their room, very chic!

Thanks! I had fun making everything. I was puzzling over how to furnish it when I recalled having 2 twin beds end to end in our family room and they were daybed/sofas. SO I thought I could start with that. Then I made one of my puff chairs. You can probably see some items came from other rooms. I made all this in a day! Maybe I should show how I did it?

Hooray for Lisa and Sarah! In the 80s my mom and I had couch beds like that were joined in a corner by a table. College, huh? Crissy's only 9, and her cousin Kerry is 16. If your dolls need a babysitter or go to camp, they have a built in solution!

Well, I always think of my AG girls as middle-schoolers (6th gradeish), so maybe Sarah and Lisa should just be in high school? Hmmm, I may have to think about this. They just have a more mature look. Hmm

We had those exact same beds with the table in the corner and one bed slid underneath. That was back in...let me think... I was in kindergarten so...1971!! Oops I think I just told my age.

I have been wanting to make a doll house for a long time but am struggling with finding the proper shelving. Did you build or purchase your shelving? I like it very much.

Hi Fawn, Our Dad made the house boxes for us out of wood, but I have heard many doll collectors like the deep shelves from Ikea. I am not sure which shelves they use, but any shelves for the dolls needs to be deeper than a regular bookshelf. I've also seen people use old TV cabinets. There are also some heavy duty steel shelves from Home Depot that are deep enough. Adjustable shelves are best so you are certain there is enough headroom. Also check Pinterest there are a lot of ideas there as well. Good luck!

Hi Brenda and Sophie, I have seen the steel shelving at Home Depot and am considering it. It is black so I would have to paint it. I will check the deep shelves at Ikea. Thanks for the tip. BTW, I am enjoying your blog very much.
