Doll Bed Makeover

  • Spray paint (white or any color of your choice)
  • Fabric of your choice for bed cover
  • Tulle
  • Staple gun


  1. I started out with this Doll bed from Ikea. When I saw it, I thought it would be a cute prop for my daughter’s new born shoot and also fun for her to play with when she’s older.

  2. It was a little plain for my taste, so of course I had to fancy it up a bit. The first thing I did was spray paint it white!
  3. Then I sewed the pink bed cover to make it a little more girly.

  4. It was still a little to plain for my taste, so I thought I would add a tulle ruffle bed skirt. I ruffled up the tulle and then stapled it to the bottom of the doll bed. Then you're done!

Need a birthday present for a little girl and can not think of anything to get he. Well all little girls have dolls so her is a great idea. Buy the simple bed from Ikea and add things to make it real pretty. You can add a dust ruffle out of fabric or tulle, a cute pillow and a nice comfy stuffed mattress and maybe even a canopy top out of the same fabric or tulle as the bed skirt. Add some lace or ribbon too. what a perfect present for that special sunshine and watch her face when she opens it. Super tutorial and so fast and easy.

The bed just fits an 18" doll.

This was a great idea. I love the picture of the newborn on the bed. What a great gift for when she is older. If you are sewing challenged just gather the tulle by hand using your staple gun as you go, it might not be as full as the one shown but it will work just as well. Fabric could be used like a dust ruffle as well. Hot glue would also work for the fabric, I am not too sure about the tulle it might melt. If you use pinking shears or decorative craft scissors you wouldn't even need to hem the blanket or skirt. This bed looks like it would fit an 18 inch doll.

some people do not know how to use a sewing machine and plus after the ruffles were made there was no picture posted showing what it was used for. More instructions would be nice. :-)

a very nice and easy idia
