Trash To Treasure DIY Barbie Doll Hotel

Trash To Treasure Barbie Fireplace DIY Barbie Doll Hotel Trash to Treasure #barbiedoll #furniture #upcycle #hotel #fireplace #bed #TV #diorama #repurpose #DIY #Thriftstore #trashtotreasureOne of my favorite things is turning something old into something new and this luxury Barbie Doll hotel room is no exception – it even comes with a view of downtown Edmonton! Have some fun and take your little Barbie Doll enthusiast out to a garage sales or go through that box of stuff in the basement you were going to drop off at the Thrift Store and see what you can turn it into!

Supplies

This project took no time at all and everything is made from bits and pieces collected from the local thrift store. I also used paper and tacky glue.

Reversible Fireplace/Fish Tank
This is my favorite piece! This use to be a mini photo album holder. I removed the photo album and was left with a two-sided display cabinet that swivels. I printed off two photo’s, one of a fish tank and one of a fire and glued them to silver stiff paper (like the lid of a Chinese food container) leaving about 3/4″ around the photos. I added glue to the edges and inserted the pictures in to each side.

A Room With A View
This is an old picture I found for a $1.00. It is  Edmonton at Christmas time with the Muttart Conservatory lit up. What a view!

The Bed and Side Tables
I used a black wooden platter as the base (see above) and an old curtain for the duvet cover and pillows. The headboard is a combination of 2 photo albums and paper. The end tables are candle holders with paper insert and black cardboard lids from small jewellery boxes. The lamp I actually found at the dollar store and it works – great find!

DIY Barbie Head BoardCabinet
This was an old jewellery organizer I believe. Whatever it was, it made a perfect shelf or cabinet. All I needed was glue and some paper and it transformed easily into a stunning piece of furniture!

ACCESSORIES

Vase and Flowers
This is a felt pen lid with some little pieces from dried flower arrangement

TV
The TV is a small photo frame with a picture of a soccer game from a magazine – it just doesn’t get any easier then that.

Luggage
This is a credit card holder (see my blog DIY Barbie Luggage) and the laptop bag is a the end of a faux leather belt cut off, folded and glued.

Towels
This is a piece of baby blanket folded into face cloth and small towel.

  1. This is so cool, I love it. I will have to share this with my cousin who has a granddaughter that would love this. My daughter is all grown up now and I miss those barbie years. I loved my barbie townhouse when I was a little girl. Thanks for sharing.

    1. My daughter is also grown up and I miss the Barbie years too and I miss my 70’s Barbie camper that I spent endless hours playing with. I have lots of Barbie DIY barbie projects on my blog and some new ones to come so tell her to check it out – I love the idea of kids and moms getting creative – adds a whole new spin on playing Barbies! Thanks for your comments.
