Have paint brush, will reno…

Kacey says she bought the dollhouse from Kmart and then set about turning it into the ultimate Scandinavian-inspired space by giving the included furniture a new look with a simple lick of paint. Extra furnishings, of the adorable, teeny tiny variety, were found on Ebay.

Also, because you CAN make something from practically nothing, Kacey did just that! She re-purposed odds and ends from around her home to create new styling bits and bobs on a mini-scale. For example, that adorable plant you see below is a cutting from a bigger fake plant – so clever!
