I thought you all might like to see some of my latest projects that have littered my craft room (garage, closets and den also!)
Pictured here is a doll bed I' built for my daughter’s American Girl dolls. I used a pattern I found on Ana White’s website. It’s hard to see in the picture but those are slats at the headboard and duplicate slats on the footboard. I did change the plans slightly so that the bed would be long enough to allow the dolls a little headroom when they are lying down. Here’s a picture of what Ana’s bed looks like so you can get an idea of what I mean by “slats.”
I matched the paint to Stampin’ Up’s Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I painted the whole thing, sanded it to distress, and then glazed it with a brown tinted glaze. The bedding was made using all Stampin’ Up fabrics. I made my own mattress and pillows too.
My daughter loved it and now she’s thinking she wants her own bed to match! Hope you like it too!
