Making a doll house has been on my list of things to do in 2012, but sometimes making from scratch costs more than buying a kit. I hate to say it, but it's true. So when I found this 4 ft doll house on sale at RC Willey for $60 (and since I was totally wiped and nauseated from being pregnant) I decided to jump on it for Morgan's birthday.
This was originally $150 at RC Willey. It currently is still on sale if you're in the market. AND it comes with furniture.
This one, which looks extremely similar, is $300 at Toys R Us.
Granted, it's completely factory boring and in need of wallpaper, a wood floor made from pop cycle sticks, and major accessorizing, but it's at least a start... and an easy one! I mean, I put it together... that counts as DIY, right?
