A few friends of mine have been teasing me with their dollhouse makeovers. All their chatter got me interested, so I had to play along with them. Today I am going to share my Dollhouse made from Crates! I am hooked on miniatures!
This is a one room makeover, after I attached the crates, I decided to work on one of my favorite areas in my own home. The dining and outdoor space.
I used 3 crates (purchased at Michael’s), a smaller one on the top. I wanted to add an outdoor area to my dining loft.
- Make cuts with a jig saw for window and door openings. (I still need to trim them out.)
- Stack the crates and glue together with wood glue. Use clamps to secure until dry.
- You can add more crates as the collection grows 😉 or if you realize you don’t have space for a bathroom!
The addition of the pergola and grass came next.
- The pergola is made from square dowels and the grass is sheet moss. I used my hot glue gun for all the construction. (Dowels are from Lowe’s)
- I added flowers and vines.
- Lantern hung with wire.
- Grill, dog food/water, water hose, flowers and vine are from Michaels
- Murphy dog is from Hobby Lobby
- Flooring is a place mat – cut to fit and paint.
- Wall covering is fabric. I used spray glue and attached it to card stock. I can change the floor and the walls easily. I didn’t make them permanent.

Grab a mini lemonade with ice! From Michaels!
All the furniture is from my friend Jeanie – they have been stored in same shoe box they were in the day she gave them to me… 3 years ago! I took this as a sign that I needed a dollhouse.
In Georgia we have a fan in every room!
This kitchen renovation is next. I found an amazing kitchen set on eBay.
If you’re wondering – yes I have an obsession – I find myself looking at miniatures way too much. These rooms are so much easier to makeover than my own.
Come on, you know you want to create a dollhouse!
