I'm stealing this idea from my friend Secelie. She says she saw it in a magazine. The kids and I went over to her house today and her daughter had this in her room and I thought it was ADORABLE!!!
She took an inexpensive bookcase and painted the insides of the shelves, putting things on the "walls" to help delineate one room from the other (i.e., a mirror over where the sink is in the bathroom, pictures on the walls in the living room). She even cut pieces of felt into rugs by making tiny 1/4-inch cuts into each end of a rectangular piece of felt. She also hung a shower curtain with a piece of wire.
She purchased her dollhouse furniture from Ikea, and I'm not sure if they still have it or not - I couldn't find it on the Ikea website and I haven't been to Ikea in a while. But I did find it on ebay if you're interested... Anyway, more pictures are below. SO stinkin' cute!
p.s. Sorry about the picture quality - I took them w/my cell phone. :)
