In this previous post, you saw how the space looked under the loft bed. This is the space we’ll be using to make our doll’s house.
I wanted to separate the area into “rooms” , however you still have to be able to step in there to move around, so it presents some challenges.
So, here is the space so far. Remember, it’s a work in progress, so there are still things that need to be done, but I did promise an update.
For the walls, I used foam board and cardboard covered with wrapping paper. I used spray adhesive to attach the paper.
Our girl is wearing the apron and kitty slippers I made for her. Isn’t she cute first thing in the morning? She fussed at me for taking her picture because she said her hair was a mess. I think she looks lovely.
The “table and chairs” as well as the stove/sink are just cardboard boxes for now. But we’ll be doing furniture later.
The cabinet is a wooden shelf thing that I bought a long time ago. Debating whether to paint it. The sign (on the top shelf) is just a piece of cardboard that I spray painted with chalkboard paint. The light is a little book light.
The bed has been moved up so now we have a fancy “loft” bedroom. I made a beaded curtain to separate the bedroom from the living area. The little lights over the bed are battery operated. I bought them on sale at 75% off after Easter (I think at CVS).
I will be hanging a tension rod in the dresser to hang clothes.
Back to the kitchen. I’m still working on the refrigerator, but it’s almost done. Remember, it started out as a cardboard box. There is a vegetable drawer and freezer drawer that pull out. I still need to add another coat of paint or two to the fridge and the handles.
The stove/sink is still a box for now, but that’s how they start out, you know.
So that’s it for now. What do you think? Any suggestions?
