Making Custom Beds from Scratch for the Imagination Dollhouse


I am making the Imagination Dollhouse sold at Home Depot in seven days, decorating inside and outside plus some furniture for a Christmas gift. My mom is making the bed linens of course and I designed and built the beds. The theme came from wooden appliqu├ęs from Michaels and Hobby Lobby. So additional pictures will be posted later, so not to give too much away. I also used square wooden dowels, I left them off the supply list picture. I painted the beds with acrylic craft paints. By the  way, I am getting a craft room makeover for Christmas, so I am working in a temporary location.

  4. Hello Jocelyn, Just want to say that I think your whimsical beds are very creative and charming. The princess bed reminds me of something from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. What a great imagination you have!
