Bathroom fixtures

I already had a tub for the dollhouse so I've been looking for an inexpensive toilet. I knew it wouldn't be difficult to make some sort of sink/vanity combo. I looked at Dollar Tree where I've found bathroom sets before to no avail. So, in desperation, I designed my own. The part that had me stumped was making a seat with a lid that opened.Yesterday I finished a bottle of liquid dish detergent and there was my mini toilet seat, lol. The bowl is a small wooden egg cup style communion cup. The tank is made with miscellaneous wood bits. The sink and vanity are in a bookcase. I removed the top shelves, glued in a mirror and cut small rounded shelves from craft sticks. The faucet is a screw hook, the sink is a lid. It is all very sturdy and "playable."

De, that is ingenious! :)

The toilet looks a lot better with the seat painted.

Thank you! Meg, I trimmed the extra plastic from the lid, too, so it looks more in scale than when you saw it.

De- you amaze me all the time- I have been trying to look at things differently, but I don't know if I will ever see minis in as many things as you do! This turned out adorable :)

Thank you all. Kim, I've been doing this for a long time on a limited budget. You will get there, I promise!
