Sometimes, you just need to stop for a moment and be in awe of immense talent. And when you see this amazing dollhouse makeover, you will know that this is one of those times!

This genius mum has taken a basic, conventional doll house and transformed into a sophisticated mansion for some very lucky dolls (and their owners). If only I could blow up the house to grown-up size – I would be one very happy lady.

Amazingly, Kacey, the mum behind the makeover has four young boys so how she found the time and motivation to make this, is one of life’s mysteries. Plus she did this as the most incredible gift for her friend’s daughter.

Kacey explains: “The dollhouse was the second one I’ve done.  As a mum to all boys, I hadn’t even thought of ever doing one but then my sister had a gorgeous little girl and allowed me to make her daughter’s first dollhouse. After seeing that, a friend asked me if I’d make over one for their little girl and it went from there.”

Wish This Was My Home!

The dollhouse is a four level estate with 6 deluxe rooms – a combined lounge/dining room; upmarket kitchen leading into a tv-room; a master bedroom with an en-suite and a kids’ bedroom and a separate laundry up in the attic.

At first glance, the before and after photos are just astounding. But taking a closer look, the attention to detail is on another level.

There are teeny tiny little throw cushions on the couch, books on the bookshelf, teacups (and Milo) in the cupboard, firewood, wallpaper, art and TV’s. So adorable!

The original dollhouse was garishly pink and somewhat boring. But in its new life, the house has a black-and-white overtone and is ultra modern. It also has an extension with a garden, grass and the cutest pot plants.

Kacey explains the inspiration behind the design: “My friend found a dollhouse on a buy swap and sell site and came up with the layout she wanted and shared some inspo pics that she liked the look of, but gave me a lot of free reign.”

Inspiration

“I get a lot of inspiration from real life homes, both my friends’ gorgeous homes and online. I sketched out a design and set to work from there, finding pieces I could tweak or repurpose to fit the need. Lots of white paint was needed to cover the bright colours and then I added the extra wall upstairs, the poles for the outside area and an extra base piece of mdf for the artificial grass.”

The house is furnished with custom-made teeny tiny furniture and the most gorgeous upholstery and linens.

Kacey admits it wasn’t easy to make the accessories: “This dollhouse was barbie doll sized so finding pieces to fit was tricky. The original house came with a lot of furniture that I was able to revamp or repurpose in the design. I made a few of the pieces and was lucky to find some things from stores that worked perfectly like the flooring in the kitchen (Kmart placemat), the bath (bowl from Kmart), the rug in the lounge (Kmart placemat) and lots of other pieces.”

Wow, we are seriously blown away by this dollhouse redesign. I’m going to have to put my order in for my girls!

  • It does look fantastic and such detail has gone into it. I personally would have added a touch of colour to the walls, instead of the whole house being white throughout


    • White paint makes a room look bigger. You would only use the tiniest amount of colour without losing the desired effect. You could perhaps put a couple of narrow pastel colours to “break” the white. A colour such as cream could probably be better than white. Part of the kitchen area looks dark and small.
