Project Steps


Can you believe we are in the month of June?!  This past year has really flown by!  My name is Ruthie and I blog over at Refashionably Late.  One of my most favorite things to do is refashion furniture!  I love taking an old worn down piece and give it new life.  Some of my favorite makeovers include our ottoman, stemware storage, headboard, and file cabinet desk.  I not only love to makeover adult furniture but I also love to makeover children's furniture as well!  I recently made over some furniture in my daughters' playroom.  My good friend's daughter had a birthday coming up so naturally, I wanted to DIY a little something for her.

Step 1

I had seen this adorable and affordable doll bed at IKEA.  I'm not a fan of natural wood so I knew that I wanted to make it over somehow.  My friend's daughter was always playing with my daughter's doll bed and I thought she would love to have one of her own!

Step 2

When painting a smaller item I love to use my Small Spray Shelter.  It's a great way to make sure that no overspray from the spray can gets on anything else in the room.  This time around I sprayed outside, but I have used the Small Spray Shelter inside as well!

Step 3

I started out with a White Primer and Paint in one spray paint can by Rustoleum.  Their spray paint has really nice coverage and this doll bed was soaking up the paint.  I had to do a few coats of paint before it was fully covered.

Step 4

After the white was dry I used another Rustoleum Spray Paint for finishing touches.  The Metallic Pearl Mist is so pretty and the perfect top coat to white.  I used the same paints for some furniture in my daughter's room.

Step 5

The last step to completing the doll bed was I wanted to personalize it.  I designed Ellie's name in Cricut's Design Space and set it to cut.  I used a bright pink vinyl as that is Ellie's favorite color.

Step 6

I applied the vinyl onto the doll bed and it was finished!  I'm so happy with how it turned out and it's a perfect little bed for Ellie to put her dolls to sleep in at night!

Step 7
