This week in my vintage dollhouse makeover series I bring you the remodeled bath and laundry room: two rooms that normally don’t get a lot of love in a dollhouse! I was determined to take on the challenge though – my girls’ dolls use this room quite a bit…
So cute! However, on my tight budget I chose to use this very inexpensive set to make over myself. This room is small (but about right for a 40’s home!), so I was only able to fit the toilet, sink and shower.
While I’d originally planned to paint the furniture blues and greens to replicate my inspiration sets, I kept it pink and painted the wood white. I added more color to the room by adding a colorful shower curtain, wallpaper, and a bath mat made from a scrap of minky fabric. I floored it with black and white check card stock “tile.”
About those awkward doors in the back? Open them up to find the laundry room!
I used the shelves from the bathroom set and the washing machine from this set (more about that later!) and gave them a paint job. I used scrap fabric for linens, and craft wire and leftover clothespins (used here and here) for the clothesline. My daughter’s Shopkins bag works great a laundry tote, don’t you think?
I added scrapbook paper to the back of the doors and the back wall for color. The artwork is from two free printables (pinned here) I that I shrunk to scale .
