Vintage Dollhouse Remodel Part IV: Girl Room

I’m so excited to share my vintage dollhouse girl room remodel with you! It has been such a vicariously fun exercise to decorate an entire girl’s room for less than $10.

When I scoured the internet for inspiration, I was drawn to the darling sets by Daisylane, Lundby and Hape. However, I was working with a minimal budget, so I set to work creating the look for less.

My taste in girly decor doesn’t fall too far from my own reality – there are many similarities between this room and my girls’ rooms here and here.

I did have freedom to go bold with the walls though, and that’s what I did. I used this beautiful floral scrapbook “wallpaper” and took my color cues from there,

As mentioned in the Boy Bedroom makeover of this series, I was able to split this inexpensive miniature bedroom furniture set.  I split the bunk bed to get this twin bed. I used an end table and lamp from another furniture set (more on that later!) to use as a night stand.Vintage Dollhouse Girl Room Remodel | www.fivemarigolds.com

I used scrap fabric to sew a duvet cover and pillow. I created a mini faux canvas out of a picture I took this summer. The other images I designed or came from free artwork (mostly from DesignLoveFestpinned here) and scaled to size, then glued to Scrabble tiles.

I already had the pink miniature dollhouse. It’s a little bigger than scale, but every girl needs a dollhouse, right?

I love this little reading nook. with floating shelves and floor cushions. To make the books, I pinned miniature book covers that I shrunk to scale and printed on card stock. I wrapped these miniature covers over craft foam to look like pages. I could use a reading nook like this in my own home!

Finally, I added a scrap of costume fur, leftover from my daughter’s poodle costume, for a big fur rug to lighten up the space.
