DIY Doll Wardrobe

Check out the video to see an up close and personal tour of these fun filled doll wardrobe.

Happy Sunday All!  I can’t believe NEXT Sunday will be Easter! Wow time is flying by and I guess it feels that way since I have been very busy in my craft room and in the hub’s workshop cookn’ up some fun playtime goodies for our two little girls.



A while ago we decided we needed to make something that would hold all the dolls and doll swag our little girls are starting to accumulate.  I wanted it to be interactive as well as organized storage.  The hubs and I sat down started to design a concept.  We came up with a design, made a blueprint and headed to the wood store.


It has taken a few weekends to knock out these two pieces, but we had a blast doing it.  We still have a large drawer to make and that is soon to be in the mix of construction. DSC_6096


I had a blast putting my Silhouette to work and cutting out vinyl and transferring it onto sections of these structures, spray painting and peeling off.  I found the cuts at the Silhouette store from Samantha Walker and Lori Whitlock.  DSC_6097


Thanks for sharing a piece of “love DIY” projects with the hubs!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.

  21. This is fantastic. Do you and your husband sell these? Even if it’s unfinished, so I could paint it and personalize it? We have two little girls that could share this perfectly in a joint bedroom/play area. Thanks!!

  28. Are the plans for this available for purchase? If so where can I find them?

  29. Any chance you would be willing to share the planes?

  30. Wow, love the idea for corralling all the doll accessories in one neat and tidy storage area that is also super stylish. I see you have shared the plans a few times via email. I would love to get the rough plans if you are still sharing. I am pretty good with building, but not design.

  31. Is there plans for this project? We would love to make a couple for our great granddaughters, 20 years ago we made a wardrobe for our granddaughters out of kits of cardboard and covered with fabric, it would hold a doll as well. They were very confusing, so got rid of the pattern.
