My daughter has been playing Little House on the Prairie in her log cabin dollhouse this week. (It may have something to do with us reading that book together right now!) Anyway, she needed another bed for "Laura and Mary to sleep in......" so Mommy got the job.

Got the idea for this from a book called Tiny Treasures (American Girl) -- but I didn't exactly follow their directions -- just sort of used it as a guide.
Here's a parting shot of the bed in the dollhouse with the little rug and nightstand I made to match it....
The nightstand (not in the book -- just something I made up) used a round piece of cardboard glued to the top of an empty wooden spool. Then I cut a circle of fabric and glued the lace around the edge. I glued the tablecloth to the piece of cardboard and wa-la - a nightstand!
