The little door that Cristina stuck over the outlet even has its own “Welcome” mat with a tiny key under it – it’s just too adorable.

In an interview with Bored Panda, the woman said that her house is full of cute and creepy décor. “I have always loved miniatures and dollhouses,” said the woman. “I am known for wearing a mini teacup ring—I attached a dollhouse teacup and saucer to a ring.”

Turns out this isn’t the first outlet she covered with a dollhouse door

The woman purchased some 1:12 scale unfinished dollhouse doors on Amazon, took them apart and reassembled them so that the doors open outwards. “I painted them and then simply hot-glued them to the existing plates on my outlets. I do not recommend this for homes with small children as they can be ripped off easily,” added Cristina.

“It’s important to know that these doors swing in so you need to carefully remove the bottom piece of wood (I used a razor blade,) flip the door around, and re-glue it,” advised the woman. “You may need to make a new hole for the pin that allows the door to swing. Make sure you don’t glue the door shut! Lastly, paint as you like, and add details and hot glue to the existing outlet plate.”

Cristina doesn’t just buy dollhouse doors to cover the outlets – she builds dollhouses herself

Cristina also creates beautiful dollhouses, like the Greenleaf Dollhouse that took the woman two whole months to finish.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
