I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted on Blogger! Free time is a luxury nowadays so I usually post pictures on my Instagram account because it takes less time than to write a blog post!
Thanksgiving weekend has given me a little bit more leisure time so I finally got the chance to post about my present project: a bookcase dollhouse. Or rather a dollhouse in a bookcase.
I have a few folding Barbie dollhouses but the display was never permanent and I had to store everything away once I finished taking pictures. They serve their purpose and I am happy with them but I also wanted a permanent display of my Re-ment collection and doll furniture.
I didn't want a big Barbie dollhouse because the accumulating dust would drive me crazy (I already have quite a lot of dusting to do with the little Sylvanian Families dollhouses!). So I opted instead for a bookcase or cabinet with closing doors so I can keep the dust away!
Since the bookcase fits dolls of about 9 inches tall, I decided to give this dollhouse to Licca and Dal dolls yet. The furniture from Licca, Re-ment and IKEA brands can fit these dolls very well. The Licca furniture set I have right now is available on Amazon.com. The Re-ment furniture are available mostly on Ebay (at very high prices) but there is a new collection of furniture being gradually released so I am hopeful that Re-ment will eventually remake some of those rare items.
Right now, I only have two shelves furnished but I am not done decorating them yet. I intend to set up all four shelves eventually.
Do you have a dollhouse in a bookcase too? If not, how do you solve the dusting problem with an open display dollhouse?
Have a lovely week!
