Per mesi mi sono chiesta
se per mia figlia fosse arrivato il momento giusto per una casa delle bambole,
ma si sa: dopo qualche anno le mamme diventano estremamente diffidenti di
fronte ai giochi ingombranti e pieni di pezzetti. Pensa che ti ripensa ho
trovato la soluzione perfetta: ho creato una casa delle bambole riciclosa, bella come un quadro, comoda da usare e poco ingombrate…
come? Ve lo racconto oggi su uno dei blog che più adoro, Faccio e Disfo.
Quale modo migliore di cominciare la settimana se non andare a trovare un’amica
speciale?! Vi aspetto!
My little girl is about to turn two. I’ve been
wondering for a while if she’s old enough for a dollhouse, but I was scared of
getting another toy and its pieces lying around in the kids’ room. Then, when
we moved to the new house and I was wondering how to hang the stuff we had in
the old one, I realized than I could use the shadow boxes I made two years
ago to create a hanging dollhouse!
For this project you’ll need shelfs of course, and
then painting, scrapbooking paper, nails, hammer, masking tape, rulers, and a
bubble level to make sure you’re fixing everything parallel to floor. I wrote
this post as a guestpost for Faccio e Disfo, so if you would like to see more
pictures, please follow this link.
First for all, take your measures and draw carefully
your project. If your kids are older (and taller!) you can choose a wider
arrangement. Fix the tape on the wall to delimit the house, then paint.
Once the color is dry, remove the tape and measure
where to hang the boxes. To keep the silhouette clean, I drew my signs on some
pieces of tape that I removed once the nails where in. Unfortunately our walls
are so hard that we had to use the drill, so the final result wasn’t as precise
as I hoped.
Before hanging the shelfs I cut some squares of
scrapbooking paper, and fix them on the back of my boxes with hot glue.
I love this house: it is at the right high for my
kids, and well visible, so they play with it a lot more than if it would just
be lying on the ground. Moreover, it looks beautiful: it’s like a ‘living’
painting, and looks great even when it’s messy.
You can really make this project your own and adapt it
to your needs: vary the size, color and background paper; and if you’re looking
for more inspiration don’t forget to check the Pinterest board where I
collect ideas for DIY houses – and if you like, I would be happy to see what
