Barbie Doll House

So today I was looking through pictures of when my kids 
were little and I came across a picture of 
the doll house I made my girls  

At the time, my girls needed a doll house that could fit all of their barbie furniture and that would actually 
fit their barbies

I used two 3-shelf bookcases and glued them 
together with wood glue
 This helped make the doll house very sturdy 
and not easy to tip over

This is the inside of the dollhouse
I used scrapbooking paper as wall paper
I cut out windows and a door from the piece of cardboard (used for the back) that comes with the shelves
I also added craft wood accents and stenciling to decorate the front of the house

For the roof, I used foam board and covered it with wood chips to give it a roof finish

As you can see from this picture, the doll house is large enough for the barbies and looks cute in any girl's room!


  1. Wow! I can't believe you made that! It's beautiful! My husband made something similar but it doesn't have a front and back. It's basically a bookshelf with a roof, but hey they love it! :)

  2. That is absolutely amazing! Thank you for sharing. Visiting from A Creative Princess. Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/07/make-it-pretty-monday-week-6.html Wishing you a grand rest of the week.

  3. How creative! Bookmarked for future reference! I have two boys, but this would be PERFECT if I ever had a little girl :) Would love if you came and shared at my first party!



  4. What a great idea! It is beyond cute too.

  5. Wow! That is so cute, I always wanted a dollhouse growing up! That would have been perfect for the barbies I had when I was little!

  6. Love this idea! We would love to have you link up some of your projects at our party!
