“Fixer Upper” has inspired armies of Chip and Joanna Gaines fans to embark on renovations galore, so perhaps it’s no surprise that those trends have trickled down to dollhouse renovations, too!
It all started when Kwandaa Roberts, an OB-GYN near Philadelphia, bought a dollhouse for her 3-year-old daughter—only to decide that the cramped layout and pink-and-white decor weren’t quite up to snuff. So she made a few improvements inspired by her favorite home design show.
The result? A “Fixer Upper” Mini-Me highlighting Chip and Jo staples such as an open floor plan, kitchen island—even some tiny shiplap!
Roberts posted pictures of her progress on Instagram, and was soon flooded with gushy comments and interview requests.
“The dollhouse was a way for me to have a creative outlet for designing that didn’t involve me redecorating my house every six months,” Roberts explained in an interview with wistv.com.
It’s true—renovating a dollhouse is far easier than renovating a life-size home. And much cuter, too! Get ready to go “Awwww” as you check out her before-and-after pics below.
In addition to adding a coat of rich paint, Roberts turned the bookshelves upside down and placed sconces on top for a more modern look.
This living room also highlights a few other “Fixer Upper” faves, including wood beams along the ceiling, a statement chandelier, and an antique-looking clock.
Last but not least, check out the mini version of Chip and Jo’s book gracing a tray atop the coffee table in the living room. No detail was overlooked. Seriously adorbs. We think the Gaineses would approve.
