I would like to thank Cathie & Steve from Plaid Enterprises for the awesome video on how to make a DlY Modern Bookshelf Dollhouse loft. I organized it into a wiki for anyone with a hearing impairment, or for those who just prefer to read the steps. Hope you enjoy it. :)
Hi, and welcome to Mod Podge Cathie & Steve, and today we are making a Dollhouse loft using a bookshelf.
I have been collecting Dolls forever, you name them I've got them, Barbie, Tiffany Tailor, little kitties, Suzi sad eyes, I've got so many dolls and I know all of them are going to want to live in this house. We 're going to be using some fabrics and some papers to create wallpaper and some flooring. We're going to fabric Mod Podge, and Mod Podge gloss to attach everything to our walls and floors.
Now we already put together the bookshelf, but we did not attach the backing yet, and we are going to show you why in just a minute.
The first thing we're going to do is to get our flooring installed.
We 're using wood green cotton fabric. Give it a good press.
Then measure your flooring.
Cut your fabric to the size.
We're using fabric Mod Podge
You 're just going to apply it to the back of the fabric.
Then position your fabric on the floor and smooth it out to remove any wrinkles.
Along this edge, I am going to add a baseboard.
For the paper, we're using gloss Mod Podge, just apply it to the base.
And top coat with more Mod Podge.
Now for the back walls, we're using this cute fabric.
Next, you want to measure and divide the backing into four equal sections.
Then, you're just going to cut your fabric to size.
We're going to do Trees for the living room, Stars for the bathroom and a Pink pattern for the Bedroom, the kitchen we are going to leave it white.
Smooth it out to remove any wrinkles.
Do the same for the other fabrics.
Here is a quick tip, you can pull and shift the fabric to remove the wrinkles.
OK guys, our fabric panels have been fabric Mod Padge into the backing of the Hodge.
Next, we're going to create some wall art and some wallty cows for our dollhouse loft.
We're going to be using some cloud of scrapped of paper to make a kitchen window.
We've got some of our fabric that we've cut out, and we're going to Mod Podging it to the wall.
And we're also going to show you how to use our Mod melts and our Mod Molds to create frames for the bathroom.
And I am going to use the gold Mod mouth sticks and our jumbo gems mold to create an art installation like the one in the bedroom.
You're just going to heat a Mod melt stick into a high temp mini glue gun.
And squeeze them to the mold.
You're going to allow to dry.
So, now I am ready for my favorite part, we've got our floors in, our walls are done, our art installation is up, and now we get to do the interior design.
We're using furniture, it's going to be in a collected mix.
We got vintage, some from Japan, some that we made and some that's brand new.
All different great looks for the space.
This is the first dollhouse I have ever made and I will tell you clear, it turn out a lot better than I thought.
I think it look supper cool, and I would love to see you shrunk down with me and we could have a nice little crafty party.
I would live there.. absolutely. One of my favorite things about this project is this book case cost 25 box, and we used the fabric Mod Podge and the Gloss Mod Podge and the Mod melts to do all of our flooring and everything.
It's a great place where you can play with dolls and feel younger and also so many people are building things like this to display their collection, and what a great way to use Mod Podge, and I love the way our art installations turned out, and if you like it please give us a thumbs up on this video.
We'll see you next time, thank's for joining us.
