Dollhouse Goes DIY

You know what they say, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

Well, this couldn’t be more true for a DIY fanatic like me, and when I spotted a wooden dollhouse on the side of the road, I just had to pick it up.

So, let’s see how I transformed a pavement find into a beautiful masterpiece!


I didn’t really want a house-shaped storage cabinet, so after a lot of hammering from my (lack of) arm muscles, my project was starting to take shape.

Next step was to give this baby a good coating of white paint. It’s crazy how big of a difference a bit of paint can make. Seriously.

The final step was to put some knick knacks in the squares! Here is the final product:
