Making a Dollhouse a Home


About that dollhouse that just missed a drop kicking on Christmas Eve.

As the year started coming to a close and all reminders of Christmas were being removed the first thing on my list was to transfer the dollhouse into Addison’s room. I finally got to it this weekend and I realized there were only a few viable spots in her room for it to go without blocking a vent.

After a little moving and rearranging we decided the best place for it would be against the wall so that she would have a good amount of room to play

Dolls and dollhouses come with more accessories than the average woman. Seeing that I am on a mission to make sure everything in our home has a space to reduce clutter, I decided to deal with the million pieces of plastic nonsense right then.

I dug out some mason jars I purchased from the Dollar Tree and decided to use them to house some of the smaller items and clothing.

While I was in there making a few changes I went ahead and added a little something to the corner where I spray painted her name sign.

I found this arrow at Hobby Lobby for about $5 on clearance. I like it, added a little something to that blank space. I think that corner may be the only place in the house I consider finished.

Did you accomplish anything around the house this weekend?

Let me tell you, I filmed my entire weekend to kick off a new series where I upload a vlog of our entire weekend on Mondays. Well went to edit and all of my footage got lost. I guess I’ll try again next weekend 🙁

    Aww love the dollhouse and Addison’s room is looking adorable. I use plastic bins (shoebox size) to house all of the little accessories but love the mason jars idea. I’m trying to tackle a few spaces and hopefully they make it up on the blog! Happy New Year!

    Such sweet pictures of Addison. I can only imagine how you felt on Christmas Eve with that thing, but it’s worth it, right?! LOL.

      Mason jars are amazing. I have an obsession with them. The ones at the Dollar Tree aren’t as decorative as some of the other but with a label you won’t be able to tell the difference.

      I am really falling in love with Mason jars. I blame that on Pinterest.

    The mason jar tip is a good idea. I had all of Savannah’s bows and ponytail holders in these tiny tupperware containers. She got a hold of them and I haven’t seen a container or bow since. That was a lesson to me to keep those kind of items out of her room. This past weekend we went thru the house and got rid of “stuff”. I finally got up the nerve to giveaway some of those club dresses from my college days. Why was I holding on to them anyway? It was fun trying them on again before bagging them up and taking them to Goodwill.

    I’m slowly working on getting our home organized… I filmed at least five (or more) YouTube videos and can’t seem to find any of them 🙁

    […] started thinking of putting a vintage school desk in my daughter’s room because the doll house that I almost drop kicked last Christmas takes up quite a bit of space in her room so I needed something […]
