Build American Girl Doll Bed,Wood Office Furniture,Balsa Wood Bridge Structures - For Begninners

Those of you who follow me on Facebook already know that I've been working on a doll canopy bed for my oldest daughter.
At first, I was just going to do three of the exact same bed (I have three girls), but my 2-year-old caught me looking at plans and saw this bed as well as Ana's doll crib, and she BEGGED for the crib. Here's my lumber all ready to go (that pile also included lumber for the bunk bed and the crib). I'll share tutorials for the mattress and bedding later, but I had SO much fun making them. Ok, so I wasn't sure if people would actually be ready to build a bed like this, so I didn't bother making a PDF of the headboard and footboard. Next, I sprayed the entire bed with Minwax Poly- acrylic and then started working on the mattresses and quilts and pillows.


The Birthday Girl has been talking quite a bit about getting her first American Girl doll, so Grace and I thought we'd make her a bunk bed.  Not entirely sure why I waited until Wednesday afternoon to start cutting boards.
I already made the farmhouse doll bed for my daughter, but she's managed to pile more than 3 dolls on it at a time. My daughter got this Hello Kitty from Build-a-Bear for her birthday, so she was my model here. Anyone who's just starting to sew should really consider making doll bedding or doll clothes.
For once, I don't feel that this item is too overpriced, for to build it took a lot of detail work especially with the sewing.
THEN I fell in love with Ana's bunk bed plans and wanted to try that for the "middle child".


If you'll remember last year I built an Upholstered Toy Box that was auctioned off at the live auction. But I knew if I did the bunk and the crib, then my oldest would feel like her bed was kinda plain.
But in our case, we wanted to gift the doll bed unfinished so the birthday girl could do the painting.
