‘Made this dollhouse for our daughter’s 10th birthday. Used few Kmart items. 99 per cent handmade. She said she doesn’t want it in pink,’ she wrote in a post to the same group. 

The super-cute house is almost two-metres tall and a metre and a half wide and is lit up with a series of string lights running through the each level.  

The tiny living room has light-up fireplace made to look like its made from exposed brick, IKEA-like furniture and an adjoining study.
