- Small Spray Shelter
- Spray Paint
- Doll Bed
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
