Doll Bed

So remember the other day when I showed you my little doll bed from Ikea?

And I tried to sand and stain it?

Finally ended up spray painting it with something I found in the garage. Then I distressed it slightly with sand paper. Finally, I like it!

My little prim doll from my swap partner, Judith in Wales, found a cozy home here on my ugly triangles quilt. Isn’t she adorable? This little quilt was the result of a challenge on the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group.

The pillow is made from vintage fabrics, a different one on each side, just because.  This was a lot of learning experience for such a tiny little bed! I do love it in my new guest room.
