As anyone with dolls knows, you have to have a place to keep all their stuff! The question: How can I keep all these dolls’ things neatly and orderly and still readily accessible for an (almost) 8 year old?
So here’s what I came up with. My granddaughter, Madison, has a loft bed and we have been keeping most of her doll’s stuff under her bed, along with some other things. She also has Barbies, Lalaloopsies, Blythe and a few others. Those are not included in this part of the room – just 18″ dolls.
The wallpaper is just wrapping paper I stuck up there.
I made the shoe rack (on the floor) from an AG doll box. There is a dresser and some lights. That’s about it.
My first task is to figure out what furniture we want and where we’ll put it. I started by just getting different sized cardboard boxes and placing them around to see how things fit. She still has to be able to get in there and move around, so I can’t fill ALL the space.
I’m starting with the kitchen and here is the box I’ll be using to make a refrigerator: She also has this seat that she can attach to her bike but has never done that. It’s really cute, so I think I’ll be doing something with this. Lots of planning and imagining. I want to have some things ready for her birthday on July 10 so I have to get busy.
Hope you’ll follow along and if you have any ideas for this space, please pass them along!
