Home Tour: Violet’s Doll House

Home Tour: Violet’s Doll House

It’s true, I’ve included Miss Violet’s doll house in our home tour. I just couldn’t resist its cuteness! Our little girl turns three this Friday and so Joel decided he would make her a pretty amazing mid century inspired doll house. He converted our old record holder into the new digs for “dolly”. The before pics show the basic structure of the formal record holder. It has the typical mid century legs, a flat top and two removable sliding doors. Joel reconstructed the roof to create a shed roof, which is a common style on mid century homes. He then painted the roof black and the exterior walls white, leaving the legs and front doors natural brown. He cut high windows on the side walls and even “wallpapered” one of the interior walls with retro-styled scrap book paper. What a guy! The inside is pretty basic: white walls and wood floor. Dolly’s furniture is your lovely Huset essentials including the Lack table in Kelly Green (DIY gold dipped legs), Klippan sofa in PINK, the Expedit shelving, yellow chair (DIY “seat cover”…aka….washi tape) and the classic black and white Stockholm rug. Dolly also has her very own decor items, including a custom made sheep skin, cow hide rug, black and white pillows (made of washi tape and toilet paper), a black and white striped throw,  wood stump, “home sweet home” art, “ceramic” vase and plant holder and gold painted and glittered mini wall gallery! This house is styling! The sliding doors are easy to put back on, so it’s good for keeping little brothers from making a mess of things!

I’m pretty sure Violet is going to freak when she sees this new little doll house just for her! A styling gift for our styling girl! A huge thanks to my talented husband for the vision and AMAZING birthday present idea! I know that was a lot of pictures, but what do you think?! 

XOXO, Lidy
