Dollhouse Decorating: The Treehouse

As you saw in our last post, Tink’s Treehouse is being seriously redecorated (something she is not happy about).

Don’t get me wrong–the Treehouse is adorable just the way it comes. Still, I think I can make it cuter, cozier, and a tad whimsier. So, I’ve disassembled the entire thing and am in the process of turning it into the ultimate fairy abode.

Dollhouse Decorating: Tink's Treehouse (Part 1).

Modern farmhouse is our style. It’s the perfect blend of rustic and elegance.

As we remodel our own home, we’re incorporating this theme into every nook and cranny, using elements like neutral paint colors, pipe shelves, and (of course) shiplap😉.

Our farmhouse.

Since I don’t have the stamina to renovate on a large scale, I let the professionals do the heavy lifting and get my decorating fix in the dollhouse. While my mother goes through the house, transforming each room into a happy, cozy space, I watch and then copycat her in miniature.

Yep, and I’m tackling the Treehouse first!

This time, however, I’m doing things differently. Instead of writing a tutorial, I made a short video showing the areas I’ve changed so far. I know–videos aren’t necessarily my strong point, but sometimes it’s easier to explain things with your voice than in writing.

So, without further ado…

Enjoy the show!

Now it’s your turn!

Would you like to see a more in-depth wallpaper tutorial at some point?

Share your thoughts down below, and I will see you soon with more doll fun! (I’m still working on those books. They’re taking a little longer because some of them are quite unique😉).


  1. I liked your video! Tinkerbell will be happy. I’ve thought about doing videos myself, but my family tells me that I have a voice for print. 🙂 If you are interested in doll clothes tutorials, check out Hanon Satomi Fujii. What kind of doll clothes tutorials are you looking for?

      Thank you😊. I stress about sounding monotone but figure the best way to improve that is by doing videos. Plus, it’s also easier to explain certain techniques in a video.

      Yes, I’m always interested in watching doll clothes tutorials. I don’t think I’ve heard of Hanson Satomi Fuji but I’m going to look them up. In-depth tutorials are my favorites, and the type of doll doesn’t matter. I’ll watch videos featuring Barbie, BJD, and even American Girl. It’s all about learning new ways to make classy doll outfits.

  2. Hello there!
    I loved the tutorial. You have a really nice voice and you explained it very well. I tried to make some in the past, but I didn’t have the time, space or skills. Hopefully, I’ll be able to give it a try soon. The house looks lovely so far, I can’t wait to see more progress.
    Hope you’re doing great.

      Thank you! I know what you mean–finding a large enough space is my biggest issue. I have a good size table to work at now, but for the longest time my photography/videography area has been a poster board😄!

  3. Thanks for sharing your progress so far. I am not very crafty so I love to see what other people do. I look forward to seeing what you do next.

      I’m glad you enjoyed the video! Yes, it’s fun watching how other people’s crafts turn out. I especially love doll clothes tutorials; however, those can be hard to find.

      I haven’t worked on the Treehouse much the last couple of days but plan to glue in the baseboards and window trim tomorrow,. So keep your eyes peeled for the next update😉!
