Now without further ado...

I present to you The Dollhouse Spa. My very first Build-Along project (my first complete project). Its a townhouse used as a Spa/Nail salon. Enjoy!

The windows, bay window, and door were purchased on eBay.

The paint color is Valspar "La Fonda Villa Fountain."  I also used this color in "Something Old Made New".

 The stone color was made with mixed colors and sand.

 The mail box and numbers were purchased from Mainly Minis.

The black leather chair, loveseat, and plant were purchased from

The flooring is bamboo place mats from World Market. They no longer have them in stock but the rugs are similar.  They don't look half as good as Mini Mod Pod's but I am still learning. I also got the mole hair napkin rings (end tables) from there as well in the clearance section. I glued the round wooden tops on the rings to make the tables.

 The desk counter I painted with vanilla paint then used clear spray paint to get that shiny finish.. accessories see post here.


The leather chair I bought on eBay last year. The desk accessories (phone and frame you can't see) I bought last year too. The others are scrapbook stickers.


The desk is covered with contact paper and scrapbook paper. The sign is made from the bamboo mats and the same scrapbook paper.

The coffee table was made from scrap wood pieces and scrapbook paper. The bowl I bought last year from a mini collector.  The leather balls in the bowl are jewelry pieces.


The zebra art work is a borrowed image from Google.  Then I painted wooden frames I bought from Michaels red.  I used Modge Podge to glue the image on the frames.

 The magazine stand was purchased on eBay. I painted the stand gray. It came with the magazines.



The Spa beds are handmade by me, see the post here. The wall art is borrowed from Google images. The clock is from Manor House Miniatures . The chair purchased from Dollhouse Junction. The tree from Michaels.

I made the plant in the back using planters from The wall unit was purchased last year along with the jars. The hot rocks was shown in this post. The towels are baby bath cloths.  And another borrowed image from Google.

The towels again are baby bath cloths. Wall art borrowed images from Google. 

 The toilet and sink are from ELF Miniatures.

The shower I can proudly say I made...see the post here. The mirror is from The basket is from Hobby Lobby. It was originally a plant and I rearranged/re-purposed the basket.

The interior door is made of plastic. It came with a lot of dollhouse items I bought last year. The knobs are from ELF Miniatures.

The walls are covered scrapbook paper. The wall is made of foam board. The furniture was purchased on Amazon.


The stool was made from a wooden block and scrapbook paper. The accessories were bought last year. The nail salon table...see post here.


 The wall art was borrowed from Google images. And the other was made by me see post here.

 The interior windows I did not finish so I have nothing share. I plan to finish in the near future.

Nothing is permanently affixed because I plan to make changes in the near future.

 And to think it all started from this...
(actually 2 kits)


  1. Wow! I love all the rooms and the detail given to each room. I really like the spa beds and the warm colors in that room. Great job!

  2. FanFrickinTastic!!!! Kudos! Well done, too bad there were no prizes on this one, I would have voted you a winner. :D

    1. Aww..thank you...You are too kind. There were some pretty creative entries.

  3. Wow this is just so amazing! How did I miss this? The attention to detail in your mini making really shines through. What I love most is how relatable these spaces are and the way you accessorized. They really look like modern day rooms, something that we need more of! YAY! Absolutely beautiful work!
