I found a dollhouse for sale by an owner who hand made it. The bones of the structure were so strong and beautiful but the aesthetic of it was not my favorite so I decided to buy it and completely redo it! I used Benjamin Moore neutral paints and floral wallpaper after sanding it down. Now it’s a beautiful, neutral, girly little dollhouse for my daughter who is starting to grow her Maileg mice doll collection!
I have a little son, Jaś, here’s how we changed his room.
We have transformed a boring interior into a beautiful, colorful and lively room.
We’ve never put wallpaper before, because it’s so time consuming.
Until we found the company’s self-adhesive wallpaper Coloray.
The wallpaper sticks easily. We don’t need glue or any tools for it.
It literally took us a while.
My son loves animals, that’s why we chose the cute Indian animals wallpaper for him.
It was a bull’s eye!
For this we put him a small table with chairs.
There is also a cupboard with animal mascots and a large flower in a scandinavian metal casing.
The accessories perfectly match the theme of the wallpaper.
It got really cozy. My little son shows the animals all the time, and we tell him their names.
These animals are cute in this wallpaper.
Do you also want to liven up your corner?
Check out Coloray!
They have many other beautiful wallpapers. Something will surely catch your eye.
We chose this project because our little girl loves being outdoor exploring, so we decided to make her a swing set and playhouse with a kitchen so she can spend as much time outside.
The color inspiration first came from our house. We wanted to have a playground that matched our home so it can come together. We are the first home in the neighborhood and wanted to make a statement with the best backyard playground.
I added touches of purples/lavenders and blues because they are my favorite colors and you rarely see these colors showcased in room/areas.
We first had to level the area because we live in a hill so my husband rented a mini skid steer machine. He order the hardware and built the swing set on his own. He made the posts of the swing 10 feet long instead of the regular 8 feet to bury them 2 feet under the ground with cement for more support.
We ordered kid safe mulch for the whole area and it got delivered to our home.
The kitchen was inspired by my dream kitchen that has modern touches with “marble” counter top and white and gray back splash.
The little house has water in the sink and battery operated lights for when she wants to stay later in the evening.
We painted everything with solid white stain and sealant to protect the wood for years.
The Reading Nook
for the little nook under the slide I decided to go bohemian.
I made a bookshelf with boxes I use for floral design and added books, decor, amethyst and crystals.
The signs I happened to have them for a while so I don’t remember where I got them from. I sprayed them champagne rose to soften the space.
I added pampas grass and duck feather into a cute hobby lobby vase.
The curtains were cut from original curtains.
The chalkboard was made from a 2’x4′ plywood board and painted with chalk paint 3x to make it smooth.
The hammock I made with crafts I had already in my inventory.
On the bottom of the rug I placed pavers for her to stand up right.
The Dream catcher was made by me( mom)
Thank you for watching, would love to see some comments and see if you love it as much as I love it.
A silver lining to the current shelter in place situation is the beautiful weather we’ve experienced! I decided to take advantage of the sunshine and give the kids’ playhouse a makeover. The playhouse is called the Victorian Mansion Playhouse, but I purchased mine from a local company in Oklahoma called Patriot Play Sets (they travel outside the State.) The company also assembled the playhouse for a very reasonable price which I HIGHLY recommend!
In my opinion, the house is super cute exactly the way it comes, but since my indoor and outdoor colors are black & white, I decide to give it a paint job to match my furniture.
I started with a basic cedar primer from Sherwin Williams. It took the whole gallon. After it dried, I chose SW Alabaster as the actual color.
The door and planters are SW Copen Blue (as you can see, it’s green, not blue) and a sample size was plenty.
My dad made the planters and shutters and the kids and I painted them.
This project took me a little longer than expected, but I’m loving the outcome. This has been one of the best investments for the kids and even though the makeover was time consuming, I’m so happy with the final product!
What do you do when you’re quarantine and have a ton of extra paint in your home? Playhouse makeover! Not only did this keep my daughter and I busy, it added a touch of spring charm to our basement!
Who’s ready for a Magnolia themed Baby Sprinkle?! This theme came from our client’s love of Magnolia Market + all things Joanna Gaines. The Soirée team did a modern approach to the theme by popping shades of blue + gold to compliment the natural beauty of greenery. Accents included wood stands, farm tables, and simple farmhouse decor. On the modern side, we used the Malibu collection of tableware which glammed our family style guest table. Such a cute take on a trending theme!

I recently scored a playhouse for free from another mom friend. It needed some love to say the least to get it to where they could play in it. I asked my girls what they wanted it to be and they both agreed they wanted a bakery. So I sanded it all down, did a whole lot of painting and gave it some pretty whimsical little touches. My mom sewed up custom aprons, oven mitts and curtains from tablecloths I found at Target. I made a mini whisk chandelier, door mat, recipe holder from an old strawberry container & even a matching mailbox. My husband built a small oven to go under the counter. All paint & supplies came from The Home Depot. We added a floor out of plywood I sanded down and painted a light lavender with some glitter to it to make it sparkle. Once it was complete we invited some friends over for a Grand Opening Celebration. It was such a fun project and my girls love it!
