My daughter's "starter home"

So yesterday i made my little one this cute little doll house. It is a "CD holder"that is shaped like a house which I purchased at a big box craft store. This little treasure was about $5.00 and in the unfinished wood section. I painted it out and decorated with scrapbook paper and sweet little embellishments I had on hand. I finished it off with a couple coats of satin finish Mod Podge.

Here's a shot of my daughter playing with her new starter home...

It was such an easy little project and you could decorate it in so many ways. I am thinking of making a few more and creating a little village for her. I am thinking a school house, a fire house, a grocery store, and maybe a couple more houses for her little neighborhood!

These would be great partnered with a hand painted play mat or these awesome play tables like these I found on
You can paint the layout for your little village with roads, yards, ponds, driveways, parking lots... whatever your imagination can come up with!

  1. Welcome to the blog world. I have been blogging since last spring. I find it to be a bit addictive, your welcome to come check it out.

    I really like the "doll house" and think I may have to copy this idea so Abby can have one, since we don't have a huge amount of space for a big ol dollhouse
