Well if you know me at all you know once I get rolling on a project, it pretty much consumes me! I will stay up till the wee hours of morning to get things just right if need be. Our doll house additions were no exception to the rule. A few days ago I shared with you our doll bake shop and our schoolroom. We’re still working on a name for the bake shop, we’ve received several great suggestions so keep them coming! If you missed the last post you can find it here:
Today I’m going to feature our newest additions. A doll salon and a doll playroom. I’m not going to lie, the playroom was my ultimate favorite project! I kinda have a bit of an obsession with miniature things so this room was super fun!
For the salon, the girls chose a purple and white stripe scrapbook paper and a light pink.
The spa chair, salon chair, and the vanity/nail salon are all from AG. The pink mirror is actually a jewelry mirror I found at Hobby Lobby a few years ago.
The pink cash register is the extra register from the second snack stand I purchased for the bake shop. I got the little nail polish graphic online and added pricing to it in photoshop. I printed it on card stock and attached it with double stick tape. The tiny plant came in a package of 2 at Michael’s in the dollar spot. I think they were originally $3 but I found them on clearance.
The styling caddy is AG and they have since released a new one that is super cute! The styling cape came from a Target Our Generation styling set. I found the super cute word art styling sign by googling “salon sign” and then adding pricing to that as well.
The girls and I scoured google image for “american girl doll photography” and found some super cute images of dolls with different hair colors and styles to display on the salon wall.
For the playroom, the girls chose a super fun bright colored striped paper for the top and a sunny yellow for the bottom.
The table is a Bitty Baby art and music table that has since been retired but it’s super cute. The top flips over and has a working xylophone and some other fun things. I found the rocking chair at a city wide garage sale for charity a few years ago and the little stand was an old jewelry box that I removed 2 drawers from to create shelving and repainted. It actually used to be in one of the girls doll bedrooms but was perfect for in the playroom instead. The doll sized jenga game came from dollar tree as did the lamp. The foam alphabet flooring also came from Dollar Tree. My girls flipped over it because we used to have the big kid sized ones in our playroom!
The little toy bucket came in a package of 2 at Target in the dollar spot last year. The small princess ball came from dollar tree and we’ve collected various doll sized toys over the years. The rubix cube, frisbee, slinky dog, and etch a sketch came from Party city. The mini build a bear came in a Mcdonalds kids meal last year and the other stuffed animal was a beanie baby keychain that we removed the ring from.
The tiny doll sized board games are all keychains that I purchased on amazon and ebay last year. I used to love them when I was a kid! They all have real moving parts and game pieces! The mouse trap is ADORABLE! The apples to apples game came in the AG sleepover set.
I googled “playroom art” and found this cute playroom rules sign. I scaled it down in photoshop and printed on card stock and secured to the wall with double stick tape. I need to make a large one for our real playroom because it’s so stinkin’ cute!
The painting easel and canvas came from the AG Saige’s painting set. The cute little Fancy Nancy book was purchased on Amazon.com by my mother as stocking stuffers for the girls one year. They came 4 to a pack and she split them up amongst them. You can find the whole collection here:
Aaaaaahhhh! My absolute favorite part of the playroom! I googled “children’s art work” and “kids handprint art” and went to town picking some of my favorites. I scaled them all down in photoshop and printed them. I colored the tiny hello kitty sheet with actual crayons for effect. Yes, I know, I’m a complete freak! lol I stapled them to a piece of yarn and tacked it to the board. I’ve since purchased tiny colorful clothespins at hobby lobby to secure the art in a much cuter way than the staples!
That’s all for now kiddos! I’m taking a break from elaborate doll rooms for a while to I don’t know, re-organize my own real people size closets! lol Hope you’ve enjoyed our little doll tour and are able to draw some inspiration for your own little darlings.
