Back in 2010, Thoughts From Alice blogger Alice Wingerden and her husband renovated their home, but this year she’s been tackling something a bit…smaller. It all started when Wingerden’s husband brought a dollhouse home from a yard sale. Made of plywood and minimally painted, the house was in desperate need of a makeover. Alice began renovating the tiny abode as part of the Dollhouse Therapy Challenge, revealing a new room redo each month from April until June, but the house isn’t complete yet. She still has to work her magic on a several rooms, but check out the flawless taste and attention to detail in what she’s done so far:
Wingerden Mod Podged blue floral scrapbook paper to the floor and made the jute rug out of twine. Hexagon tiles add texture to the wall behind the appliances, while the rest are painted a simple white (all are lined with wood trim). Some pieces were saved from Wingerden’s childhood and others were purchased from Miniatures.com. The level of decorative detail is impressive—even the bamboo blinds are cut from the real thing.
Wingerden describes the kitchen’s style as “modern farmhouse with a vintage vibe and eclectic details.”
Living Room Detail
The dollhouse’s living room features pine flooring, a pale gray ceiling, and walls lined with wood trim. Covered with patterned teal scrapbook paper, the back wall also has the same bamboo blinds as the remodeled kitchen.

Full Living Room
Wingerden calls this look “boho eclectic.” Some of the DIY pieces include the shag rug, couch, pillows, and coffee table (clearly there’s no craft challenge Wingerden can’t conquer). The antique miniatures, collected throughout the years, add a vintage feel.

Girl’s Room Detail
Wingerden went with a princess theme for this room, adorning the side walls and floor with patterned pink scrapbook paper. She primed and painted the back wall and ceiling with chalk paint.

This vignette features the same wood trim as the kitchen and living area, a vintage brass bed (note the canopy made of the same sheer material used for the curtains), and even has its own dollhouse. With five rooms to go, we can’t wait to see what she designs next.
