Dollhouses are a staple of every little girl’s childhood. I still remember mine vividly and how I kept it underneath my raised bunk like bed and would spend hours playing family with my dolls. I also remember vividly the bright primary colors of red, blue, yellow and green! Not exactly my current style these days! I think we live in a time now where cluttering our homes with those plastic bright colored dollhouses are a thing of the past. This new generation of parents strives for quality/long lasting products that don’t have to be such an eyesore! I’m going to show you know how I created this totally custom dollhouse for my oldest daughter to surprise her with on her birthday (which happens to also be Christmas!)

  1. Pick a dollhouse! You can really revamp any solid wooden dollhouse but I chose this FLISAT wooden dollhouse from Ikea to hack because it is well made but affordable and offers the perfect blank surface for customization! Now if only I remembered to take a picture of this beauty before I spruced it up! But you can see it on their website by clicking HERE.
  2. Choose your wallpaper! Now I didn’t actually use wallpaper for this dollhouse but you’d never know that. I actually just went to Michaels craft store and bought about 3 sheets each of the designs I liked (each were 69 cents!) And I grabbed some extra strength double sided adhesive rollers  like this as well as a craft trimmer board like this.
    • Once home measure the walls and mark up the BACK of the craft paper to prepare for cutting. Remember measure twice and cut once! (But really this is why I bought extra paper because I always mess up!)
    • Cut out the “wallpaper” and roll the adhesive to the back before carefully applying the doll house walls.
  3. Accessorize!
    • Furniture: I got all our custom furniture for this dollhouse from November Oak Minis and I am blown away by the quality! I simply sent her inspiration pictures for design to show her the style I was going for and she sent me each room complete with wall hangings and furniture. I am so blown away by her creativity and I know my daughter is going to LOVE this when she receives it. She even replicated our beloved Nugget Comfort in the girls’ room!! This will be a dollhouse I know we will get many years of fun out of! Buying a custom dollhouse set may seem overwhelming but when the rest of the dollhouse is as affordable as I mentioned above and taking into account that this will be a dollhouse will last for years to come I think it makes for the perfect gift for any little one in your life! Make sure to shop this amazing etsy shop here and stay tuned as she plans to add room bundles very soon for the holiday season! custom dollhouse, diy dollhouse, modern dollhouse, dollhouse for little girls, November oak minis, Ikea dollhouse hack, dollhouse hack
    • Family Set: I wanted to make this dollhouse as special as possible for my daughter. She’s at an age where she plays with intent and her imagination is really soaring. I came across Teeny Weeny Toys and their Custom Family Peg Doll Set immediately caught my attention! I had our whole family replicated in peg doll form and it turned out amazing! This shop also has some super cute princess peg dolls and a community helper set that I know my girls would love too!

  • It’s an exclusive club and they may be the presidents (in my humble opinion 😍) #thegooddudesclub #raisinggentlemen / @thewishingelephant
  • We’re about a month (month and a half) out from move in of our new home and antsy is an understatement! Things may be kind of slow here over this time as we have to pack up our current home and de clutter like a mofo 😂 So bear with me! I’m also going through and organizing some stuff on my blog to hopefully make my posts more accessible for you all to sort through moving forward. So much fun stuff coming up and I can’t wait to bring it all to you! For now here is the picture that started it all! I shared Joie’s updated nursery featuring her floor bed many moons ago and it blew up. Everyone loved the idea of this floor bed (which is really just a trundle bed with no wheels) and from this I created a blog to dish all the details. And 3.5 years later here we are 🙋🏻‍♀️ Thank you to everyone new and old who has made this journey so much fun! #homewithnoelle #floorbed #montessorifloorbed
  • There’s something about wanting to disinfect and clean my whole house after that run the Flu gave us the last few weeks. #ad That’s about the same time I stock up on all the things from Lemi Shine.  I know I can trust their better-for-you line which gives me the safe ingredients I need for my family but also the power of citric extracts to clean the way I need my surfaces cleaned (and without leaving behind any toxic residues!) Lemi Shine recently launched some of their amazing products at select Publix locations over Florida so make sure to check yours to see if they’re carrying it yet! You definitely will want to give this line of cleaning products a try! #cleanbetterdobetter
  • Finally sharing ALL the details from the boys’ first birthday #ontheblog now 🎉✨ See all the decor, the adorable set up I had for the boys, all the great favors and gifts we were able to donate to toys for tots! It was such a memorable day! #onewildyear #wildonebirthday #twins1stbirthday
  • Getting their new @diono Rainier 2 AXT car seats adjusted before school pickup for the girls and I can’t get over how grown up these little boys are looking 💙💚 They’re both shooting up physically and developmentally and it’s so fun to watch! Also, #twinmoms please send me all the tips on getting them to the car and in their seats safely because switching from infant seats to convertibles with twins has been a learning curve 😂 (note: I realized after this picture that Beau’s headrest needs to be lower) #diono #rainier2axt
