Doll bed posts

Just a quick post about another holiday project.

My boyfriend's mom, Cindy, asked if I would help her with a gift for her niece. Like so many little girls, she is very into American girl dolls, and Cindy wanted to make her a bed for her doll. Cindy sews and was planning on making the mattress and the bedding, but she hoped I could make the frame.

I wanted the bed to be more interesting that just a flat headboard and footboard, so I bought these two table legs at my favorite antique store.
I cut them up, used a leftover piece of furring strip from another project for the cross pieces,
And I ended up with a cute little bed.

  1. That came out so cute! I love to see things creatively "re-purposed."
