Mod Podge Meets Doll house

Ever since I purchased this large doll house nearly two years ago, I've had big plans for it...I just didn't know what.  It was ugly blue with ugly blue trim.  About a year ago, I decided to paint it yellow, but it just looked terrible.  

Yesterday, it hit me, I LOVE mod podge... I love scrapbook paper... I love that VERY large doll house....why not bring them all together to make something fun and cheerful for the kids that fits our personality?! 

This project was completely free as I used everything I had on hand.  
Mod Podge (I love the glossy kind), scrapbook paper (the thin kind), scissors, exact-o knife, and paint.  

I would have gone with different patterns, but I used what I had on hand (because I have been sick and haven't left the house in 6 days.).  

So here it is.... A pink and green doll house that invites you to enjoy hours of fun and imagination! 




The next project will be 'wallpapering' the inside :)

Sorry for the lame photography skills, this picture does not do it justice, the paper that I used each has different patterns and you can't pick any of that up here. I couldn't get enough light or the right angle in the play room.  I guess you'll just have to come on over and play with it yourself! ;-)

And in case you are wondering...the kids love Love LOVE what has become of the doll house.  Buddy said "this is my most favorite thing in the whole house!", KennaCat said "It's BEAUTIFUL!!" (In her very enthusiastic tone)

That's just lovely! I just acquired an old dollhouse from a neighbor, and was planning on doing the same thing, so I searched around online and found yours. Great job!

can I ask how you went about measuring the scrapbook paper and fitting it to the walls? iv'e done this before but it never comes out just perfect.

Speckled Kat said...

If I remember correctly, I measured, drew the measurement on the paper, and then put the paper up to the wall to make sure it was lined up before cutting.
Hope this helps!
