American Doll Bed

this is a staple of mine, one that I love and my nieces do too. Every time a niece, so far 5 have got them, I have them all ready, built, sanded, primered, and an activity that we do together, is paint the beds whatever color the girls want. They love it, we also sew a mattress, 2 pillows, and they get a crochet blankie to take. Really great bonding time! Also made 2 for the make one, take one campaign of Ana's. These are the cutest, sturdiest beds I've ever seen. And yes, every niece has climbed into their beds to "test" them out :)
