Dollhouse Reno

Renovating my childhood dollhouse for Beck + Belle is something I've been over the moon excited for.  My dad made this dollhouse for my sister and I when we were young and I'm so happy that we're going to be able to give it a second life nearly 11 years after his passing.

The dollhouse itself has been in our garage for nearly a year.  I've been waiting for a bit of inspiration before getting started and through recent family troubles I found peace in planning the future design.

I'm excited to spruce it up with some fresh paint and vibrant pastels!  I wish I had taken a before picture.. I'll have to see if I can find one somewhere.  Here's a picture of it stripped of the wallpaper and flooring, with a fresh coat of white paint.

I'm going to use pastel corals, teals, and potentially add a little mustard into the mix.  Here's a few images I'm using as inspiration.

I can't wait to share more, I've already painted the exterior and colorful shingles are in the works.  I hope it turns out as beautiful as it is in my head haha  

On another note, we took our first trip the the American Girl doll store to see if they had dolls for the house.  Ellia Belle ran around in circles from the babies, to the girls, to the babies and then she noticed the dogs... Can you guess what we made it home with?  Meet the doll houses first resident, Cake the dalmatian! 

Clearly we like spots in our family ;)

Until next time, Molly
