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