Creative Space - Dolly Bed Reno completed

The $5 dolls bed from the Op Shop has been pimped and primed and Miss E was excited to pop her doll 'Lily' in it today.

Remember how it started out...

only 5 days ago I might add ( because I am a procrastinator and have to be proud of small achievements)
It is now sporting a new mattress, made from a thrifted pillowcase.. with a pillow to match
A quilt made of thrifted sheets, doilies and a thrifted vintage hanky with beautiful lace on it.
and to help Miss Lily Dolly sleep a little lavender heart
She looks pretty happy dont you think.. in a plasticky doll kind of way...

I would sleep in this bed - if I was an eighth of my size obviously (or maybe more I don't love fractions!) It is SO cool. Well done.

Lady Muck said...

Wow Leonie - that is a result! I love all the bedding that you've made for the bed. I'm sure your daughter will treasure it always as well as treasuring the memory of having collaborated with you in such a creative way :)
