Hey everyone, we hope you're all doing well.
Here is another dorm room we made a few changes too...
When I started this house a year ago, my goal was to get it done quickly, Lola was anxious to start playing with it...so I wanted to make it livable for the dolls, it has gone through some changes this past year, and I think I can finally say it's done.
BEFORE - FEBRUARY 2012
It was not easy getting this room decorated because of the spiral staircase, I don't regret the staircase because I love how it turned out. If I were to start making this now, knowing what I know now, I probably would have added the staircase outside the box...but make it look like it was in the box, did that make sense? The great thing about using cardboard is I can add little sections to it, do cut outs etc...
I will be start working on a new dollhouse for a couple of the characters that may have a spin-off show on our YouTube channel, and it will be a lot brighter, more wooden furniture (aka popsicle sticks) etc... I can't wait to start working on that one. It will most like be my last Monster High Doll project.
I try to make each room look different, instead of adding wallpaper (aka gift wrap) to the full wall, I did half the wall and cut up strips of black paper for the stripes.
The curtains were very simple, I cut up a piece of cardboard, as long as the window and about 1/2" wide, then wrapped black velvet material around it, and glued the curtains to the back of it.
AFTER - FEBRUARY 2013
I didn't like leaving the side walls blank, so to improve the room I painted strips of paper pink, like the back wall and glued the pieces to the walls.
The black velvet frames is a piece of cardboard covered with velvet then I glued my old earrings to them.
I love how they turned out. I can't wait for garage sale season so I can find old earrings to do more of these little pieces of artwork. I also made the mirror on the side wall, I used a small mirror some silver long beads then painted some small sticks pink.
I bought this old pink furry hat at the thrift store, so I cut a couple of pieces to use as rugs. The silver frame was also from the thrift store, I painted the frame silver. We are encouraging our viewers to email us their works of art so we can replace the paintings in the frames. The round box was also found at the thrift store, I added some bling bling to it, its used for their clothing and as extra seating.
On our next post we will show you the first of two boys dorm room.
