Doll House Living Room Makeover
To fit my budget, however, I purchased this inexpensive set online and made a few modifications.
I left the couch and chair frames as-is, and re-sewed very simple cushions to give it a woven tweed look. I sewed pillows to give the room a little pop of color. I used scrapbook “wallpaper” for a grasscloth affect, and more of the textured scrapbook paper rug (also used in the boy room) that fit the modern look.
I added large art to the wall that I sourced for free from designlovefest (love that site for free desktop art!) and shrunk to scale. Side note: I need to find a way to incorporate beach photography in my own home – can that even be pulled off in the Midwest?!
I got a little crafty with the end tables and ottoman. For the ottoman, I used this bottle cap tutorial I pinned online, and applied it to a little plastic box I had.
I attempted to recreate miniature versions of these inspiration end tables:
I used hairspray caps and hot glued in a criss cross (jump! jump!) pattern. I then gave them a coat of white spray paint. I think someone more skilled with a glue gun could have aced this project. I’d say mine are functional and passable as end tables, at best. 🙂
