Creative dollhouse play place where you’d least expect. When your furniture doesn’t fit, you have to get creative.
It finally happened. The cheap particleboard dresser broke. It was 5 years old and completed a PCS move or two, so I can’t complain too much. But buying a new dresser was not in the budget.
Luckily, I love second hand shopping! I found the perfect dresser that came with just one problem.
The furniture didn’t fit!

When you move every few years you are hopeful things fit into place, but that doesn’t always happen. Most people sell things and move on.
Hi guys, my name is Sara and although I AM NOT a pack rat, I don’t like to throw things away. I love giving things away that my children outgrow, such as clothes and toys, but when it comes to things like furniture I’ve learned to get creative.
TURN YOUR KIDS CLOSET INTO A DOLLHOUSE PLAY PLACE
I love upscaling, reusing in a creative way and moving furniture 16 times before moving it back. I’m the woman who gets the floor plan for the new house on base and cuts to scale furniture shapes to see where everything will look best before the movers arrive.
So the dresser wasn’t going to fit in the closet to save space in the bedroom for the dollhouse. But why not put the dollhouse in the closet?
Most people should have doors on their closet. Especially when it looks like that inside of them. Yikes.
I thought about it a little more and the doors were defiantly coming off and we were turing this into a dollhouse play place!
By removing the doors we have more useable space in the room. With the added curtains it helps hide the mess after a day of playing.
This little area has become her favorite place to play. It’s cozy, warm and a creative solution to making everything fit.
When you move every few years it’s important to think outside the box. Next time you have a piece of furniture that just isn’t working the way it did at your old home, try getting creative with the placement or even the use of the furniture.
And THAT is exactly how our dinning room hutch has become our TV stand.
