DOLLHOUSE TO BOOKCASE MAKEOVER

My wonderful neighbor who is always giving me amazing things recently gave me a doll house. It wasn't in the best of shape since she kept it in her garage for the kids to play whenever they were out playing so it was a little beat up. I'm running out of room in the kids playroom so I figured I would put it in the kids actual room and use it as a bookcase instead. I didn't want to spend too much time on it so I gave it a fresh coat of paint and added a little color to the roof. I was inspired by my kitties teepee since it's such a fun colorful print. It took no time at all and it was looking brand new. The kids love how it turned out.

  1. This is such a great idea. I wouldn't have thought of making a bookcase out of a doll's house. It turned out really nice, I like the dots design on the sides. And I also like the books in it, they remind me of childhood. :)

  2. What a great post! I would have never thought of making a bookcase like this. It makes me sad I just donated an old doll house because I had no use for it!

  9. After I found out about the death of Prince and David Gest I could really do with some cheering up so the bright colours and polka dot design really made me feel happier!
