Amy’s American Girl Sized Dollhouse

If I haven’t said it enough, I LOVE IT WHEN OUR READERS SHARE photos of the fabulous things they make for their dolls!! Amy sent in photos of the American Girl dollhouse she and her 8 year old daughter made. They were inspired by another house that was showcased on Doll Diaries.

Homemade Dollhouse for American Girl dolls

Basically, it is three wood boxes that are 2 feet tall by 2 feet deep by 4 feet wide. They painted them white and then different colors for the walls. Amy and her daughter been collecting for a few years now. All of the furniture is a combination of items from American Girl, Our Generation, Springfield, and Etsy (Amy’s favorite is the handcrafted furniture from Esty) and a few random pieces from second-hand stores.

    I have a question for Amy. I was thinking about getting the Dreamy Daybed. I wanted to know the dimensions of it when open, if I was going to put the bed as if the pull out bed was facing the opening of the dollhouse. Thanks soooooooooooooooo much!

  17. Ava says:

    Very cute!

  18. Jen says:

    This is AMAZING! I was just thinking last night of something to do with all of my stuff. Did you build the boxes or buy them somewhere? If you built them, did you buy wood already cut the right size? Sorry for al the questions but I love your idea and would like to do it

  19. aglover says:

  21. madelon says:

    That is amazing!

  22. Courtney says:

    I have an American Girl doll house with six rooms.

  23. Pretty Irish AG says:

    I want a dollhouse for my ever expanding AG collection.

  24. Dani says:

    Where did you get the boxes and how much money are they? i think they would save my family money instead of building it.

  25. Amy says:

    My husband and I don’t have woodworking skills or a workshop, so we paid a local carpenter to build these boxes for our daughter. He used MDF I think. If you go to Lowes or Home Depot, they may cut the wood for you, saving a step. I originally wanted to use bookshelves but could to find any that we’re deep enough. Hope this helps.

  26. Pretty Irish AG says:

    I want to build a dollhouse for my dolls, any advice?

  27. amanda says:

    You could make one from stronger cardboard boxes and use some duct tape with a nice design.

  28. Bella M . says:
