Or maybe just for a doll. An American girl doll to be exact. I tried to get this done for Christmas since I knew we were getting my daughter a doll. But I ran out of time and so this will be for her birthday next month. I found the plans on Ana white and was torn between building this bed or bunk beds and opted for this one. However I guess my wife decided to get our daughter two dolls. Smh

All built with scraps i had laying around, including the bed slats taken from a crib someone was throwing out. Finished it with two coats of some leftover trim paint and then prayed it with lacquer.

Ended up being about 12” x 19”. Will have a neighbor make a mattress for it.

I’m sure this was a hit…even if the dolls have to fight over it.

If your daughter is like mine were at that age I’m sure she will use it plenty. Looks like you have an “opportunity” to make another bed for the other doll. You know, while you are at it, you could make her bed to match…......
