Dollhouse Bookcase DIY

Great news! I’m done a build I’ve been slaving over. It’s always a good day when that happens. Today I am sharing one of my new most favorite woodworking projects to date: Tootie’s dollhouse bookcase DIY with a modern spin! It is an inspired combination of the Pottery Barn dollhouse-shaped bookcase (way too big for us) and the Ikea Flisat dollhouse (too small).

Tootie’s New Bookcase

I designed this piece to sit in front of a window, so I wanted it to be longer and shorter. I used my KregJig for this project, as well as a couple of other basic tools. We wanted it to look beautiful sitting in any room, so I decided on finishing it with a natural wood stain and matte water-based polyurethane (love this stuff, btw) with matte black and matte white accents. (Also finished the painted areas with the water-based polyurethane to add durability and prevent scuffs and chipping.)

At first I was worried that going so natural/monochrome would be boring. But I think it looks perfect filled with books and toys. A color would have made it look too busy, in my opinion. (But I hate most color, so I digress…)

When Tootie saw it, she crawled like a mad woman across the room. She started pulling things off the shelves, rearranging them, and putting them back on. It melted my cold heart.

Now that it’s built, I’m thinking about tricking it out by adding some painted “windows,” a door on one compartment, a curtain on the other, maybe a house number. I want to customize it a bit. What do you think—what would you do with this build to make it an original?

This is awesome!! I can't wait to see the fun little additions like a secret door and a curtain on one section. I think those are great ideas! I'm sure that Tootie will enjoy this for a long time!!!
