Dollhouse Surprise (Guest Blogger: Doug!)

As Tatum’s birthday approached Steph had a great idea of getting her a doll house. She remembered how much fun she had growing up with one and this would be the perfect surprise for Tatum and perfect for her 4th birthday! So, Steph enlisted my help to build it. Sure thing I’m thinking, I’ll just snap the thing together and be on my way – right?

My first clue that my expectations might be off a bit was the box seemed to weigh a lot for a simple plastic doll house

So, unpacking the box, checking that all of the parts are there (including the hardware packages!). This is going to take some study to make sure we don’t have any leftover parts when done. …and I dig in!Screen Shot 2016-11-29 at 11.31.23 AMScreen Shot 2016-11-29 at 11.31.43 AM

Almost there. But first, I need to get the doll house table done. Now, as we all know, IKEA furniture can be troublesome and often times you get the pleasure of disassembling it and reassembling it correctly.   The table, however, was unexpectantly SIMPLE!

Done! That was easy. Now, let’s stack everything together…Screen Shot 2016-11-29 at 11.32.05 AM

Ta Da!! Everything stacked together perfectly just like Steph planned!   I can’t wait to see the excited expression on Tatum’s face when she is surprised by this huge Doll Mansion. Oh, I mean Doll House!

Now, bring on the next kid assembly project (see Happy Room Blog!).
