Doll Bed Makeover

 I have a sweet niece who loves playing with dolls.

 So while I was in the thrift store last week, I spied a doll bed that I thought she might like to play with.

For $3.00, it was a great price, but in need of a makeover.

 I cleaned it off, then painted it white using leftover paint.

 I added beadboard wallpaper to the headboard and footboard.

I covered the bottom sides with fabric and ribbon trim for a softer look.

 I made a pillowcase with leftover fabric and ruffled trim.

I purchased a foam cushion and covered it with fabric in colors to match her room.


I hope she enjoys it!

  12. My husband made a dolls bed for YoungerSon's toy Wrinkles dog (remember those from the 1980s?) and I made the mattress, pillow and covers..... and now it's played with by his 3 yr old son... and the new baby twins will love it too, when they get a bit older.
