Our Maileg Dollhouse

Hey friends!! It’s been forever since I’ve posted anything on here ahh! Finally sharing our Maileg dollhouse, which i’ve been meaning to share for months now!! I’ve gotten so many questions on where I got everything in the house, so I’ll try and link everything, but most everything is the brand Maileg, and was purchased from my fabulous friend over at Lollipop Cabin. She’s the sweetest and she will be having a huge black friday sale, so keep an eye out:) She also offers free shipping on anything in her shop!

The dollhouse is an old bookshelf that I painted and re purposed into our sweet Maileg house! You can usually find lots of these on Marketplace or local yard sales, but if you want to be able to fit the Maileg kitchen (it’s huge compared to the mice!), you’ll need to make sure that one of the shelves it at least 13″ tall. I searched for a while because every house I found was too short and didn’t fit the retro kitchen, which was a must. Here’s the only “before” picture I have from the marketplace listing, but I just painted it all white, added a back to the lower shelf, and added wallpaper. It was pretty easy to fix it up and it’s a nice, solid + heavy house.

A little tip on Maileg furniture: the furniture line is so much bigger than the little micro sized mice. The mice generally measure anywhere from 3-5″, and the furniture for them is a lot bigger! (the kitchen is 13″ tall). I love having this big house, so we can fit lots of mice and furniture in it:) The Melissa and Doug house we had before this didn’t fit any of the furniture, so sadly I let it go and got this one instead.

    Love this! Is all the other furniture 1:12 scale? Where did you get the couch and lamp from?

  2. Valerie says:

    Your dollhouse is gorgeous! I have the exact same one 🙂 What size are the beds? Trying to figure out what sizes I need for ours. Are the chairs and benches mini or micro size?

    Thank you

    On the wallpaper, did you use actual wallpaper or a heavy paper? What did you use for glue?

    Do you ever wish the house closed up? I’m debating on a couple different houses. And also, how tall is the overall height of the house?

    Thank you!! Simply amazing!! xo

    This is just so wonderful! My kids already have a dollhouse but you make me want to have another full of Maileg just for me! Hehe! Pls let me know if your friend still sells the dollhouse- your link isn’t working.

    Hey! I LOVE your Maileg house! I was actually able to find the same dollhouse bookcase on marketplace and am in the process of fixing up for my daughters birthday. Couple questions…
    the wallpaper you used, is it actual wallpaper or just craft paper that you adhered to the backing? Also, where are the food sets from? I recognize some as Maileg but can’t find the coffee pot, ketchup, mustard and other condiment type stuff.

    Thanks so much for your help!

      Hi!! Thank you so much!!! Ohh awesome! So, the wallpaper is an actual wallpaper roll from Target. It’s sticky and so I just stuck it onto the back walls very easily. You could also use scrapbook paper or something similar and probably just use modge podge to adhere it. Some of the food is Maileg, and others are from Barbie or Our Generation from target! I am going to link one of the food sets we bought, let me respond as a comment. Thanks again!!

    • Melissa says:

      This is the link for ALL of the food sets we have- It’s part of a huge diner set, and I know you can probably find some of the food on it’s own!! But this is just specifically where the coffee pot, mustard, etc are 🙂 HOpe this helps!! https://amzn.to/2VKR1nJ

    Hi could I possibly get some measurements from this dolls house – it’s looks great and I would love something similar sized as I know it works with Maileg ❤️

    Did you make the kitchen set, the stove, oven, fridge. If so are you selling the plans? Your design is wonderful.
