My daughters couldn’t wait for the crafting to get done with this room in their dollhouse. They were so excited with the results. What dollhouse would be complete without a space for your dolls to pamper themselves?!
A set of shelves was made by painting and gluing together mini wood crates found a Michael’s craft store. These crates had to be painted, not stained, due to a large amount of glue on them. These crates worked well for this project, but they are not the quality of crates used in the dining room shelving.
I recycled bead containers to make decorative bathroom decanters. I hot-glued beads and buttons to the containers to create stems and handles. I placed sea salt in one to resemble bath salts. I cut down paint sponges to create bath sponges and placed them in the larger container. I filled the rest of the shelves with light up flickering tea lights. The bottles are from Our Generation bath sets.
The block glass window was made from a picture found on a Google search and a recycled 5×7 frame. The picture was laminated. I did not want any real glass in the dollhouse just in case the frame would ever fall. The frame was attached to the wall with Command Velcro Strips. Below is a PDF of the block glass for your use.
Silver Command hooks were attached to the bathroom wall for robes and towels. A basket with magazines was placed next to the tub.
Bathroom wall art was made from finding a cute saying on a Google search and printing it on Avery clear sticker paper.
The toilet paper holder was made out of a 6 ¾ inch candle stick holder. I used a coping saw and cut off the top candle cup and bottom base. Then I used a wood end cap and drilled a hole on each side. I glued the cap to the remaining middle portion of the candlestick. Then the holder was painted silver. I used gold decorative floral wire and threaded it through the holes in the end cape. I bent each side of the wire down around and folded into each end of the toilet paper roll. The toilet paper roll was made out of a black straw cut down to 1 ¼ inches. I cut plain white computer paper into 1 ¼ inch strips and wrapped them around the straw until I got the desired thickness. I think I used close to two sheets of paper. I attached each strip with clear tape. At the end I used a glue stick.
The sink and tub are from American Girl. The toilet is from Payne Street Doll Boutique. I have no idea why American Girl has not created a full bathroom set since larger scale dollhouses are so popular. I emailed my ideas to them years ago! A potty was created for the Bitty dolls…why not the larger ones? Plus, the potty could very well be considered “historical.” I remember watching Little House on the Prairie when the Olsen’s got their indoor bathroom…. Okay, I’m off my soapbox. Hehehe.
My daughters were ready to start playing! Enjoy!
