Thought I "wood" share.....

Hello!  Just wanted to share this little project I made for my daughter, Lauren.  I purchased some wood from Lowe's and made a bed for her American girl doll.   I made the pillow (Laura Ashley fabric) and used an old lace pillowcase to create a sheet for it.   Just thought I "wood" share :P
 And yes, my paper crafting supplies came in handy even when making this wood crafting project.  After I made the bed, I used some Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere some lace along the edge of the bed.  Just thought it added a little "pretty, dainty" to the bed.  Lauren loves it.  She could hardly wait for me to finish taking the picture so she could steal it away. Success!
Thanks for stopping by!
