Farmhouse Doll Bed x4

I saw the Farmhouse Doll Beds on Ana's Website and knew right away I wanted to make them for gifts for my daughter and my 3 great nieces!!!

I added a few touches to make them my own.

I am thrilled with the way the mattresses I made came out.. and my mom helped with making me the bedding!

Thanks, my mom is the one who made the bedding! I did the mattresses.. which was fun. Got my daughter involved and we even made the buttons. I found matching bedding for the beds.. just different colors! Thanks for the comment!

Love the finishing touches. Please share how you made the mattresses. That part is my weakness and these look perfect!

I cut the plywood to fit the bottom of the bed.. I had to drill 1/8 inch holes through the bottom of the plywood to coorespond with placement of the buttons. I then placed foam over the plywood and covered with the material. I pulled material tight over the foam and stapled it to the bottom of the plywood. Lastly I used a button making kit from Hobby Lobby and made the buttons - pulling the string through the mattress with the button attached and pulled it tight. After pulling it tight I used an offset screw underneath the mattress to tie off the string.
