3 Doll Farmhouse beds

I needed a Christmas gift that would give me a lot of bang for my buck. Instead of buying 3 beds for my 3 daughters at $75+ each, I decided to build them! My sister-in-law made unique quilts for each them, and it all added up to a project that they loved.

The time listed is for all 3 beds. I took two afternoons to build the beds, several hours to paint them (the most tedious part) another afternoon to sew the mattresses, and one more to sew the pillows, cases, and sheets. My sister-in-law sewed the quilts.
