Maryellen’s Living Room Set
Who is ready for Maryellen to come out?! Just get here already! Enough with the teasers right?! By now everyone should have seen the leaked photos from American Girl all over social media. Not to mention that American Girl has been giving us sneak peeks on their pinterest page! As much as I love sneak peeks, and I am guilty of them myself, I just want to see the entire product!
Here is my DIY version of Maryellen’s Living Room Set. Her table is actually a three tier table, but since it’s DIY you can make it however you want! It still has the same feel and design. Once I have the real thing on hand I will design a sketch up for those woodworkers out there! That one will be more accurate of the design. I really hope you enjoy my version!
Funny Story-The table is complete and sitting off to the side waiting for me to take pictures of it when my youngest Lexie walks in. Lexie,”Mom, what is that??” Me, “It’s a table.” Lexie “It’s looks weird! Really weird!”
- White Foam Board
- Kidney Table Printable
- Maryellen Table Printable
- TV Guides
- E6000 Glue
- Gold Card Stock
- White Paper
- Glue Stick
- Large & Medium Dowel
- And of course Mod Podge!
- I used Mod Podge on the table top printable BEFORE I glued them to the foam board. Do not add Mod Podge after. It will warp the foam board.
- I used scissors to cut out the printables from the foam board. It gives a very nice crisp edge over the x-acto knife. At least for me anyways. It does take more time though.
- When I had the tables turned upside down with the E6000 glue drying on the legs, I also squirted some down into the legs. I thought hey, extra strength right? Just make sure it dries all the way before you flip it over. You could use hot glue, but it won’t hold up as well.
