Hi there! Yesterday I showed you the surprise, a peak inside this box. Today, I will give you a tour. So let's get started!
First, here is an overview of the whole room.
On the right side is the desk area.
And on the left, we have the bed with side table.
Above the bed are these circles that came out of an AG sweet treats book. They are supposed to be pencil toppers, but I thought they would like cute on the wall.
For the bed, I am using an AG doll box which looks like a white bed skirt or bed frame, and the bedding that my grandma made me. The floor is some leftover vinyl tiles we had in the garage.
The walls of the box are just covered in some scrapbooking paper that was on clearance at Joann Fabrics a few months ago, and the top is covered in white poster board. Tip: If you choose scrapbooking paper that already has lines in it like this wood one, you can match them up so you won't see where they meet. For the poster board, it is bigger, so it's better than a bunch of small pieces of paper patched together. My mom helped me cut some strips of moulding to covered where the top half and the bottom half meet.
The headboard is an old little shelf that I think my grandma gave me, I'm not sure. It was grayish-blue. Now it has fresh paint and some accessories, and I think it makes a pretty good headboard. :)
And beside the bed is this cube thingy that I am using as a side table.
I put a mini plant inside (from Pier 1), the Bible I made here, the owl decoration that my grandma made (you can check them out here), a tissue box my mom made a long time ago, and the little key is from an old necklace. I think it is the perfect size for American Girl dolls!
A closer look at the plant? lol
Oh, and of course there is a lap desk on the bed, with Rebecca's tablet and her tea.
Moving to the right side we have the AG retired desk and the chair I made here.
And the AG doodle backpack is sitting on the floor as well as little basket with some magazines inside.
The little turquoise frame, I can't remember where it's from. It might be Michaels. And the picture inside came out of an AG friendship book. The popcorn is from some play food I had when I was little, and it's the perfect size for my dolls! The pencil holder is the one I made here.
Here you can see that the ceiling still needs to be painted white, and it needs moulding. And I want to add a light.
Chocolate loves the new room.
You can make one too! You need a box that's big enough. My mom got this one at Christmas time because she ordered some stuff on Amazon and they came in this big box.
The total cost was about $2 because the box was free, the stuff inside was stuff I had or am using as doll accessories, and the walls are just clearance paper that are glued on with Aleene's (which I already had.) The wood paper was like .17 or .19 each, and the moulding was from my dad's garage. But if you don't have the moulding, it is only like 2.57 at the hardware store! And like I said, the floor was some old tiles leftover from our floor.
So I hope you enjoyed this room tour and maybe you will be inspired to make one too, or maybe you already have. I'd love to see your doll room photos. You can send them to amayapaes at gmail dot com. I will be happy to feature your photos in a post!
