Hello, friends! It’s time for another dollhouse post. We are inching closer and closer to the December 15th deadline which is less than 3 posts (including this one) away. Last week I shared the finished bathroom and today I have the finished master bedroom and kitchen.
As I mentioned last week, the wood wall behind the bed is a collection of floor samples from Home Depot. The bed itself looked granny (like this) so it got new bedding and headboard. The side table and kilim rug I found awhile back at a thrift store. The mirror, picture frame and glass jar are from Hobby Lobby. The silver bowl on the floor is actually a Christmas ornament sawed in half, with pinecones I snipped from an old Christmas wreath. The red chair is another Christmas ornament from CB2.
The bed frame had a tall frame originally. I used the existing headboard banisters or “legs” to anchor the hemp string and wrapped the string around several times to create a quick headboard. Ta da! The furry blanket is actually from the band of a Santa hat I grabbed at Target in the dollar bins a few days ago.
I’d love to add some lighting but for timing sake, this room is complete. This is absolutely my favorite room in the house so far. Love the white walls and white floors paired with the reds, browns and natural textures.
Next up – the kitchen.
No appliances in this kitchen. They’re all “hidden” behind drawers all fancy like. The front of the cabinets are more floor samples from Home Depot – cork this time around. The countertop is black mat board from Hobby Lobby. The toast (yea toast!) and corked bottles are also from Hobby Lobby. The fridge isn’t here but is on its way from eBay land.
The closer we get the more you’ll notice it needs some finishing work. The pendant lights are meant to look like farm lamps and are just the tops of small ornaments from Target. Yep, they are attached to the ceiling with paper clips. Keepin’ it classy around here. The photo is a mini glossy photo I picked up at a thrift store. The photo was originally in the kid’s room but if you look close, it’s an image of boys in their skivvies at the pool so didn’t think it’d be appropriate for a 9 year old girl.
I obviously still need to add trim (and possibly a sink?) but glad to finally make decent progress.
At the end of this (AKA two weeks) I’ll do a big tour and show pulled-out shots of the rooms so it is easier to see how everything ties together. Honestly, I’m excited to bring the dollhouse back upstairs and give it a permanent spot in my real-size house. And then have a party so people can gently fiddle with the diminutive decor.
Next week I’ll have the dining room and living room to share. I actually bought furniture (my first piece of purchased mini modern furniture!) from the very talented Logan who is also participating in the challenge.

p/s: Random note. I’ve rekindled my love for animal print. This is my new cell phone cover thanks to their recent 25% off sale. Meow.
