Modern Farmhouse Doll Bed

Submitted by papamike on Sat, 10/03/2020 - 16:29

I made a 1/4 scale model of The Modern Farmhouse Bed as a doll bed for one of my granddaughters. I just divided all the measurements by four to get the dimensions and cut my "lumber" from a single 2 x 4. I cut shallow slots in the headboard posts for the planks to fit into, then glued them and secured with clamps and tiny nails. I made the slots where the side rails met the headboard and footboard posts a little deeper, 1/4", glued, clamped, and tacked with the tiny nails. All the nails were countersunk and the holes filled. Stained with "Aged wheat" stain. Foam rubber mattress and pillow covered by fabric.
