Last Thursday I used a gift card to buy another piece of doll furniture…
So guess what I’ve been doing with my free time on Thursday and Friday? ?
IT’S SO MUCH FUN! ? If you read part 2 of HOTH season 2 you know that I finally ordered two doll bunk beds with my birthday money (that I had gotten all the way back in June :P ). They arrived on Thursday, but you know this. What you don’t know is the story behind the other piece of furniture that I was able to get that day!
Well guess what?
Somebody bought me a bunch of clothes from Target as a gift. I returned them and got a $107 gift card. I was able to buy the Our Generation Wooden Wardrobe with it! And there’s still money left on the card. ? It’s a win-win – Target doesn’t get my money and I get the Wooden Wardrobe for free. ?
But back to the bunk beds, since I assembled those first. Here is the first single bed, finally completed! It took the first one longer to assemble because, well, it was first and building things isn’t my strongpoint (aka I kept messing it up ?), but all the others were easier since I knew what to do by then. :P
Josefina was the first to check it out.
Eek! It looks perfect! I love it so much! I might make different bedding for it in the future, but right now I like it because it matches the color of my walls pretty well. Here you see the bunk beds just kinda hanging out until I can organize everything.
And now it’s time for the second bed. :P
AHH! It’s so cute!! This is EXACTLY the setup I had envisioned. I just love gazing at my doll room and looking at the neat little beds… They’re so cute. The $110 for both beds was well spent. Absolute perfection!
You can buy your own bunk beds here:
And here’s the doll room, late Friday night (hence the bad lighting… heh heh), completely finished! It took a while to figure out where everything would go, but I’m SO happy with how it turned out! I even vacuumed. :P
Here’s how I set it up. The door with the mirror folds out, and I’m just keeping it that way. It came with a little pink vanity seat, but I’m not using it. I didn’t like the pink ribbons attached to everything because the ribbons looked messy, so I tried untying them but they’re glued on. :P
All the dresses and coats are hung up in the closet part of the wardrobe. I didn’t like the hot pink Our Generation hangers that it came with, so I’m using my own. If you ever plan on getting it, keep in mind that the AG hangers fit the best in here. The ones from the “Sofia’s” brand are big and it will make the longer dresses touch the bottom.
So I eventually hung the longer dresses on the AG hangers I had; that lifted the hem off the floor. I put the shorter ones of the lower-hanging Sofia’s hangers.
On the left you see the shelves. That’s where I put all the shoes. I really like it that way. The taller boots won’t fit in there (unless you want to lay them on their side), so in the bottom left corner of the pic you can see some tall boots just hanging out by the computer desk. ;)
•The white bin in the back holds roller skates.
•The blue bin holds swim suits.
•The smaller green laundry basket holds shoes made out of fabric.
•The larger green laundry basket holds leotards and larger clothing accessories like Josefina’s vest and her shawl.
•The light green basket holds tops.
•The pretty basket all the way on the right holds bottoms like leggings, jeans and shorts.
A little bin of bracelets.
My doll room organizing days are far from over! :P Now I have to re-do Issa and Lexi’s bedroom from Hang on to Hope. I had to get all the furniture out of there to see how the finished result would look in my doll room and there was no way I could wait until the end of season 2 to do that. ?
Oh, and expect some AGSM’s in the future. I can’t wait to get started stop motioning in my new beautiful doll room. ?
Well, that’s about it! Thanks for reading, y’all!
What do you think about my finished doll room?
