I love Ana's farmhouse doll bed. But I've made a couple beds/cribs, and I know how tedious it can be to make the slats, so I cheated and used a 1x6 across the headboard instead of the slats and a 1x3 (turned lengthwise) for the footboard. :) It was a gift for my daughter's friend who is using it for a stuffed animal, so we made it more narrow as well. Details on the changed dimensions can be found on my blog.
