AG Bed

As I previously posted for Alyvia's birthday she recieved an American Girl doll.  I made her a quilt, bed and pillow.  I previously posted about the bedding here, today I am going to talk about the bed.

At our old house I had this skinny tall chair in the bathroom to hold towels, decorative I guess.  Anyway when we moved to the new house (3 years ago) I didn't really need it for that purpose anymore. Therefore it sat in the garage until about 2 months ago when I found it a new purpose, life.

This was before, cute chair, not very functionable.

Lining up the holes-like the laser level? I scared the crap out of Steve using the saw!

The headboard and foot board are from the chair, the other 'rails' are just spare 2x4's we had around (it looks a little crooked but its not really)

Here it is done.  She loved it! Yeah!


  1. Brilliant! I have been looking for a way to make one!

  2. i would like to make one as well and i think that is just brilliant! :)
