Happy Tuesday! So my cohosts (Anu, Alice, and Emy) and I had all planned on sharing our Dollhouse Therapy June plans last week, but sometimes life gets a little crazy and things don’t go as anticipated. When that happens, you just reset your sale and postpone a week! So here we are already in the second week of June (how did that even happen?) and I am excited to show you my plans for the spaces I am working on this month, which will be the last month. That’s right, at the end of this month there will be a final dollhouse reveal and we will also be giving away a $100 credit to miniatures.com ! And those who have been playing along will have the chance to link up and show their final creations as well.
This month I will be working on the kitchen as well as the nursery, which was sort of a last minute plan. We had this extra attic space and we thought about creating a playroom, but we just didn’t have the right pieces. We happened to already have a little cradle, so Emmy and I decided to just go ahead and create a nursery. Here are the plans for that space, and I was mostly inspired by my friend Amber’s dreamy mountain mural.
Emmy selected the colors for our own version of Amber’s mountain mural. We had a cradle on hand, as I mentioned, and we decided we would boho it up with some fringe, inspired by this awesome cradle. We had a little tiny black tricycle on hand, as well as a wooden wing back chair that is getting a makeover. Ours had upholstered cushions, so I plan to use some leftover black and white fabric from the girls’ mattresses. (Pillow pictured above, however, is from Wayfair). Finally to add a fun little touch, I am DIY-ing a teeny tiny tassel garland similar in color to this one from TasselLove on Etsy.
Now let’s take a look at the design we are going for in the kitchen.
The above mood board is more like a loose interpretation. 😉 We have cabinets that I painted mint, and I created marble countertops. I found the refrigerator on etsy. The cast iron stove came from my childhood, but you can find a similar one here. I based the plans for open shelving loosely on my own open shelving and even brought in some jadeite from miniatures.com. And I will admit my shelves are far from perfect, but they’re up and so far they are staying on the wall. So yeah. I am creating my own lighting similar in look to the pendants seen here, and I already owned miniature sailboat art but I did find one for you on etsy, in case you want your own! For some of the smaller accessories like the bread box, baguettes, glasses, and even paper towel holder, I turned to miniatures. com. We have a dining table, sailboat picture, and chairs already in place, and here’s a little sneak peek I shared with you earlier.
