(13 of 14) Retro Barbie Bathroom Diorama Construction

Walls: foam core covered in green paper and "tile." Joined together with glue and white duct tape. I used double sided carpet tape to attach the tile to the wall, but it still does not stick perfectly.

 

Floor: foam core covered in sticky cork contact paper

 

Shower: vintage Sindy repainted (Apple Green Valspar Plastic Spray Paint -- my favorite brand of plastic paint (from Lowes))

 

Sink, tub, toilet: modern Barbie repainted (Apple Green Valspar). I had to add wooden legs to the sink, too. The sink is marked Japan and I do not know how old it is.

 

Washer/Dryer/Iron/IroningBoard: Gloria repainted

 

White Table: modern Barbie repainted. It came with some medical stuff

 

Medicine Cabinet and 2 pink shelves: I made them from Balsa wood

 

Fluffy towels: one pair of socks ($1 bin at Michaels crafts)

 

Towels in laundry closet: pink fleece

 

Towel bars: dowels, bead findings, eye hooks

 

Toiletries: I made all of the paper ones and repainted most of the others and added labels.

 

Toilet paper holder: real toilet paper is on it. It is modern Barbie repainted

 

Hamper: Madeline

 

Wall art: made by me - I did a tutorial for it on my stream

 

Scale - hand made copy of Barbie's vintage scale
