It’s not the first time we talk about Ikea’s hacks, those DIY tricks to transform basic Ikea’s pieces into something different and special. Today, we will show ou how April and May have transformed the traditional BILLY bookcase into an amazing doll house.

You can start making a roof on the BILLY bookcase. This you can do with two foam plates covered with wood veneer. Of the remaining foam plates, you create walls for different rooms of your dollhouse.

For making the details and mini furniture,  let your imagination fly! You can use simple materials. Just some foam, cardboard, ice cream sticks and… voilà! The most special and coolest house your imagination can create is ready to offer lots of funny hours. You can add your own touch with special details such as posters or different textiles. In this case, we can perfectly see that cool Ikea’s Scandinavian style but imagination has no limits, maybe you could decorate it as your own home!


Black and white are the focus of attention in these fantastic spaces, specially created for the most exigent dolls. What a cool touch for the kid’s room! It’s as cute that it will look great in every single room at home!

Kids will love the idea of having their own customised house, creating, designing and decorating it as they can choose all the elements to get the most personalised look! Let them becoming interior designers and we are sure you will be nicely surprised!
