The tiny girls are proud to show off the results of their up-cycling efforts. One last post post about my dollar store dollhouse furniture bash, and it's time to move on--now for The Bench.
My Dollar Tree dollhouse bed is pretty cute, I must admit--it's just too short for the dolls to rest comfortably. Time to bash!
I pulled off the bedspread, then popped off the head board and foot board, and cut the bed lengthwise into two pieces with my Xacto blade and a metal ruler--one piece (the new seat) is about 1-7/8" wide, the other (the new backrest) about 1-1/4" wide.
Glue the seat and back together at an angle--hot glue works great for this. Glue on the sides/arms. With a little paint you're set! Hmmm--looks like maybe a bit of sanding with an emery board could be a good plan!
It's been a long project, but the girls are almost ready to move into their new home at last.
