Actually, this is how the bed started out.
With the help of my very talented sister, I was able to give my old doll bed a new look. First, I gave the bed a fresh coat of white paint. Then, I gave my sister, the Art teacher, a scrap of the pillowcase material and asked her to paint the bed to match. I let her have creative license and knew I wouldn't be disappointed. Of course, I wasn't. Thanks, Auntie Leesh!
You see, where I love crafty things and have talents related, my sister got the drawing and painting talent. We can't have it all, right?
Also, I recently added a foam mattress. I had 4 inch foam left over from a custom cushion I did for a client a few months back. A little trim with the electric knife, and it was the perfect size for the bed. Next, I made a fitted sheet for the mattress using an old pillowcase I had in the linen closet. I think my little one is going to love putting her babies in their new bed. I am excited to see her reaction.
Easier Than I Thought!
