Thrifty Thursday--Our Papa-Made Wooden Dollhouse

I've had a lot of people comment about the dollhouse my girls got for Christmas.

They are indeed loving it!
And I am loving watching them play together.
I also love that Papa made it for them.

I had found several I liked online, but they were all so pricey.
So I drew up plans and he did the rest of the work.
He is awesome like that.

It took several hours, spread out over a few days.
But he got it done and it turned out great.
Very Waldorfy and open on all sides for lots of angles of play.

Now onto the Thrifty Thursday Link-Up!

My friend Lindsey, from Apple of Mama's Eye, and I love to save money!!  We love a good DIY project, thrift store shopping, making, growing, stretching ourselves to learn to make and do more at home!  So please join us with your DIY, $$ Saving, Simple Living Ideas!!


  1. Oh, wow that doll house is beautiful!! What a great Papa!

  2. Very cute! Since Papa made it that makes it even more special!

  3. It looks like a fun dollhouse. I like that it is so open. I stopped over from A Mama's Story.

  4. I can't believe he made it! It's great! I found a cute wooden one for Christmas at the thrift store for $15. When I post about it, I will link it up here!

    PS My husband still has those cute blocks on his list. He has the wood in the garage. He made stools first. I'm posting about them soon too.

  5. What a blessed family to have such a skilled papa!
