IKEA Hack: Doll Bed

Every teacher is asked to donate an item to our annual school auction. I decided upon donating an 18″ doll and accessories after finding the handmade school uniform made for my daughter’s A.G. doll. The package has grown. LOL.

Every doll needs a bed, right? IKEA’s solid pine Duktig bed fits 18″ dolls perfectly; but it is a little bland.

Three coats of chalk paint (using Valspar Baby Blush) and a thin coat of wax helped to transform the bed.

Vintage-inspired decals added that final touch. 

More cookies, please! This doll bed needs a mattress, a quilt, and a pillow and case. . .

. . .And pajamas, a robe and slippers. . .

. . .and of course, tiny wooden clothes hangers. My husband is making a matching clothing wardrobe rack. I think I’m done with this auction package. Have you ever gone overboard? Oh well, it’s worth it if this package brings a smile to a little one. 
Happy St. Pat’s Day and have a good week! – – Joanne

    1. The auction is a big fund raising event for our school. I’m pleased to say that it did very well. Not sure what I will donate this year…
