My Ikea Dollhouse Renovation!

Dollhouse Apr 5, 2024

If I thought for even one minute that I wouldn’t lose my mind doing a new dollhouse project, I was completely wrong!

I just launched my super exciting dollhouse course and this Ikea hack renovation (using this dollhouse) is one of the projects I did in the course! With 33 videos, FOUR renovations to inspire you, printable project planner, furniture plans and so much more. So you can make your own dream tiny houses one breakdown at a time.

Enrol in my dollhouse course here!

Ikea Flisat Dollhouse Renovation – what I did!

  1. First, I used this printable project planner to decide what I wanted in the house. Girl math girl construction girl does whatever she wants!
  2. Then I cut out some windows. Not really necessary but windows just give it that extra something.
  3. I added Timber siding and a shingle roof to give it that real house vibes was next, and then it was time to get into the wallpaper.  Wallpaper is like a cute outfit for a dollhouse so I would never skip it (it’s actually hard to find good wallpaper so I’ve included a bunch of my picks in the course). 
  4. I made all the floors from scratch, experimenting with a bunch of new techniques including herringbone timber and timber tiles.
  5. To finish it all off I made all the furniture. The bed, the kitchen, this sofa and even a stone fireplace and the kitchen from scratch (ahem, you’ll find plans for everything in the course).

Ikea Dollhouse Hack Reveal!

On the outside there’s painted pink timber siding, a gorgeous stained shingle roof, window trim and climbing floral vines. Inside there’s the bedroom with mustard floral wallpaper, timber herringbone floors and yellow board and batten. There’s even a tiny window box seating and a standing mirror!

Over to the bathroom there’s checkered tile floors, green floral wallpaper, board and batten and a ceramic bathroom set.

Upstairs in the living room there’s the cutest gingham sofa and I went digging in the recycling bin for materials to make the fireplace. There’s also a seriously cute standing bookshelf.

Finally, my favourite room in the house – the kitchen. Modelled on my fave kitchen in the world there’s a big red workbench, a blue kitchen with a tiled red and white back splash. And there we have it, the basic Ikea dollhouse proved to be no match for my ability to overthink and obsess about tiny things!


You’ll find everything from this dollhouse, and all my previous dollhouses, in my new Dollhouse Course! You can hit the link in to enrol, if you start this weekend you could have at least two breakdowns by Monday! Yay!
