Make your own Ikea doll houses

Ikea is the new mini. Mini doll houses that is. I love these two Ikea doll houses and the dolls too!

Variera is the room

Chris throws out the veggies on the Rationell Variera shelf insert and brings in the minis. The Variera pattern makes a terrific “textured wall”. And the toy kitten is just too cute.

See more at Chris’ Call of the Small blog.

Lekman doll house
Ana sets up home for her doll in the Lekman box.

“Doll House made with Lekman box and some acrylic sheets. Made for a PukiPuki Bjd (Ball Joint Doll), about 1/12 scale. Also used an electric system for the lightnings. The steps are covered underneath with aluminium tape to give them a mirrored effect. The back and bottom were sprayed with white lacquer for remove the translucent effect.

    Are those hard boiled eggs that make the seat of the chairs or is that supposed to be coffee tables? How cool.

  4. I am flattered to be included in a post. I wanted to clarify that I used a Rationell Variera vegetable box, not a shelf insert, in this hack.

    Where’s the Expando-ray? I want that wall pattern. Actually, an Expando-ray would totally be useful in many areas of life.

    Good stuff!

    Thanks, Jules! I am flattered to be included in a post. I wanted to clarify that I used a Rationell Variera vegetable box, not a shelf insert, in this hack. The box I used is here: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30133961. The box came with the beautiful patterned insert — the cheapest doll house I ever bought!
