Of course, Kit has the room in the “top” of the house. Her room could use something more in it, I just haven’t figured out what yet. I think it’s going to be “I’ll know it when I see it” kinds of things. Part of the problem is I really hadn’t planned on a room just for Kit, but then they ran her bed on that darned Jill’s Steals and Deals. I am glad I bought it though, it is really well made and I think this version is much more authentic in the color than the new one they came out with. What is with all of this color coding crap anyhow???
Kit is a typical little girl with her toys and stuff strewn all over as well. I am still not 100% happy with the flooring in her room, but it works. If I do decide to put walls in the dollhouse, I’ll make hers with a wood grain finish in keeping with the attic room theme like in her story.
Her nightstand is the one I found at a thrift store. Another Dollar Tree lamp, the little vase is also a thrift store find, filled with flowers from the garden stand. The camera clock used to actually work, the battery died and I haven’t been able to get it open to replace it. I’m almost afraid as to how corroded it is too, but I do know how to clean that if I can ever figure out how to open it. It’s still cute.
Her chair is also a thrift store find, cluttered with her hat, her dolls and a bin underneath that stores the hand puppet collection. As you can see she’s recently taken up bowling too!
I had no intentions of buying her desk. But I thought it was so cute. I bought the typewriter. Then I did our taxes and our refund was more than what we were expecting, so I decided to “pay” myself for doing them and I got her desk. It is one of the nicest things I’ve ever bought from American Girl, so detailed. My only complaint is it isn’t finished all that well, I think they could have done a little better on that aspect, it has some rough spots on it. I need to keep my eyes peeled for some cute stuff for in the cubby holes in it.
Up on the top she has her books, her Downton Abbey statue and a photo of her beloved Coconut! That was also a picture I cut out of an old AG catalog. That works so well for little photos for in tiny frames. I don’t know how she expects to throw any dirty laundry in her hamper with that beach ball in there!
That’s it for Kit’s room! As I said, it’s still “in process” at the moment. I would like to find a different chair for in there, and maybe a small set of shelves so I can add some other little things. I still need to make her an extra pillow and a set of sheets. In August I will be showing you Alya and Shivan’s room as well as the bathroom, hope to see you then!
