I just LOVE sharing all these photos that our fantastic readers send in! Here is yet another doll house for American Girl dolls and it even has a garage for little brother’s cars and trucks! That’s one creative Mom!

The note from Jessica reads:

Your site was helpful when doing this project, so I thought I’d share and give back… and brag a little. I made this for my four year old daughter and 2 year old son’s room out of an Ikea Bookcase.

Now let’s take a look at what she created!

Using the Ikea bookcase is a really smart way to build a house for your dolls – especially the shelving units that have adjustable height placements like Jessica used.

Here is her American Girl doll’s bathroom. I love the attention to detail – right down to the “tile” floors and walls.

How sweet is this closet? Again, the detail in the carpet and wallpaper make it so special. The dresser looks like one of the storage containers you can easily find at the dollar store, too.

This is the kitchen which looks to me like the Our Generation kitchen set.

In the dining room, her American Girl doll invites a little friend and her cat over for some lemonade.

A garage for little brother’s cars – BRILLIANT! That is how you get your kids to play together.

Even the garage is neat and tidy – complete with all the details of a checkerboard floor and hubcaps on the wall. Too, too cute!

Thanks so much Jessica for sharing your beautiful doll’s house and garage with us. Your kids will get years of enjoyment from it and there is room for the collection to grow, too!
