Poesy’s Bedroom


I mentioned in my last post that I was working on creating a bedroom for my newest American Girl doll, Poesy. Today, I’m going to share some pictures of the room and talk about how I created it. 😀

Here goes!

Here is the whole room. The walls are constructed of 2 white tri-folds from Hobby Lobby. I like using the tri-folds because they’re really tall, which gave me plenty of space to decorate the walls. The floor is a large piece of wood paneling.

On the left side of the room is Poesy’s loft bed. It’s a bunk bed that I got from Amazon, then I removed the bottom bunk to turn it into a loft bed. 🙂 The mattress came with the bed, and I made the comforter and pillow.

On the wall above Poesy’s bed, there are several posters and a photo banner.

Poesy really loves dogs, so she has a picture of some puppies from an American Girl catalog. There’s also a Tangled poster (she loves Disney) and a Peanuts poster. The “AG Doll Awesome” poster is from Samantha. 😀

Here’s a closer look at the photo banner.

Poesy’s cute little sock monkey is a Christmas ornament. I love how realistic he is!

The little ladder is so cute! Poesy’s backpack is hanging from it. I got the backpack from Joanns.

On the right side of the room, there is a fluffy chair, a small rug, and a shelf with some of Poesy’s belongings on it. There is also a gallery wall above the shelf:

I used a combination of printables and handmade items to create this gallery wall. I really like how it turned out!

This “P” took me so long to make. It took quite a bit of trial and error before I was finally happy with it. 😛

I got this shelf from a thrift store, the little horse is a Schleich toy, and you can get the mini Polaroid here. 😉

Poesy’s fluffy chair is from the My Life As line at Walmart. I love the pretty lavender color!

The chair is very comfy. 😛

Above the chair, I hung some colorful paper cranes that my younger brother made for me. He’s excellent at origami. 🙂

Back on the left side of the room, there is a play/storage area set up under the loft bed. The fluffy rug and the chest are from Joanns, and the other items are from a variety of different places.

 It seems like a fun place to relax and play or maybe read a book. 🙂

Here is an aerial view of the bedroom. It took me several weeks of work to get it just right, and overall I’m quite happy with the outcome. 😀

That’s about it! Thanks so much for reading, everyone!

What is your favorite part about Poesy’s room?

  4. Wow, this is amazing, Clara! You did such a great job – it looks like a real bedroom! 😀 I can tell you spent a lot of time on it. Oh my goodness, guess what? I have that exact same purple fuzzy chair, but in human size! XD It’s so soft. My favorite part of Poesy’s bedroom is the corner with the chair and shelves. I love all the little details, especially the “P” and your brother’s crane garland. Everything is so pretty! 😀

  5. She’s more basic than my cousin. Now all she needs is some starbucks. I think April would get along with Poesy she’s the only doll that isn’t fangirling over bands and coffee. XD

        1. I had a feeling she did. XD
          Meh, I don’t feel that Bing It On is a very accurate representation of Google and Bing’s different qualities. All is shows is some search results. 😛

            1. I KNOW! But since the searching part is pretty similar on both, I think Bing and Google’s other features should be compared to get a more accurate representation of which is better! 😛

    1. Thank you so much, Grace! 😀
      To make the polaroid banner, I cut out pictures from magazines, then hung them up by cutting toothpicks in half and gluing one end to the top of the photo and the other end to the string. To mount it on the wall, I tied each end of the string to a tack and stuck them at the very top of the wall where they wouldn’t be visible in photos. 🙂

  7. This room is so cute Clara! One of the most fun parts of doll blogging/photography is acting like an interior designer and setting up rooms and scenes for them! Poesy’s room is so realistic! Oh, and one of the posters looks familiar! XD 😛 😉

    1. I cut a “P” out of cardstock, and then I cut an inch-wide strip of paper and glued it all around the edge of the letter. Then I painted it, sprinkled glitter on it, coated it with Mod Podge, and added sticker gems. 🙂
      Ooh! A new what? XD
