1. Stunning Kallax Dollhouse

Would you believe this cute dollhouse only involves an IKEA Kallax, two shelves and some ply wood? Simply angle the selves and cut accordingly. Add some wallpaper to finish the rooms off. Simple, fast but so beautiful.

How cute are these?! I absolutely love these stools, and if they were higher, I would totally have these in my house (maybe that’s a possibility…). These were made using the IKEA Flisat stool.

These will add a little light to any kid’s room. Super creative and decorative, these light decorations look stunning.

I love how this wardrobe is actually kid-sized! Most toddler’s wardrobes are really box cupboards for adults.
