As much as I enjoy refinishing or freshening up a piece of furniture, there is a satisfaction that comes with actually building a piece from scratch! I was fortunate to grow up in a home where my dad enjoyed woodworking and was more than happy to teach me and let me try my hand at it.
I’d recently decided I wanted to pick it up again and have slowly started building our tool collection. After my recent headboard project for our master bedroom, I decided to build a doll bed for our daughter using some scrap lumber I had in the garage.
I decided to paint it the same soft cream I used on this dresser and sewed a little flannel fitted sheet, pillows and coordinating quilt using some leftover fabric I had in my stash from another project!
The "mattress" is just a piece of thick batting leftover from my headboard project, but I plan to replace it with a firmer piece of 2" foam.
Here's a quick pic next to my daughters crib - it's definitely a good size doll bed!
I’m happy with the way it turned out and hope it will be enjoyed for years!
Thanks for stopping by!
