Right, we are in the fifth part of this series! (If you’ve missed any of the posts, see the links at the end of this post.)
One more room to go: the kitchen, and then it is the outside.
But for today I present to you the Lounge!
What is a lounge without a couch? That is the first item I made, and this is how:
I’ve used foam packaging, cut it, and stuck fabric strips on with strong glue. (I bet there is a neater way to do this, but this was the easiest.)
Then of course you need a TV and stand! Here’s how it was made:
I stuck 4 small wooden boxes together. I did not paint these, I like the unfinished look, maybe Lella will decide to paint it at a later stage. Inside are “dvd’s” and “books”.
The “flat screen tv” is a small gift box we painted black and added some stickers of Sponge Bob, cause Barbie like Sponge Bob;)
The “decoder/dvd player” is an old stamp, with some number stickers stuck on.
I’ve added a black and white “rug”, fleecy fabric, to the floor, and made scatter cushions from the same fabric for the couch. The “coffee table” is a small gift box, it had the flowers on already, so I kept it like that.
On the one wall, you’ll see a window(different textured paper) with the frame made by corrugated craft board. The other wall has “paintings”, scrapbook paper frames with drawn pictures.
And there is the lounge of our modern upcycled doll house!

The best part of dollhouses (I think) are the little extras, and I love the ones you add here! I would be a proud doll to live here! lol!

I love this! I am ready to put my feet up and lounge on that comfy blue couch. Any child would be thrilled to have one of these. I know our little ones, boys and girl would love it. It brings a sense of whimsy out in adults too.

So true Theresa!
