DUKTIG bunkbed for dolls
Materials: DUKTIG doll bed, paint, metal brackets, material & stuffing optional
Description: Name brand doll beds for the 18in dolls are expensive. I had already found the DUKTIG bed to be a great deal. As the doll collection expanded, so did the DUKTIG collection. Short on space in a room that the girls share, we decided the dolls needed bunkbeds. The beds will not stay on top of each other on their own so we used a metal bracket.
1) paint pieces (optional)
2) lay headboard & footboard on firm surface & hammer the bracket into place securing the two beds together.
3) assemble side rails
4) you can use the bedding provided or you can spruce it up.
~*~*~*~*~ a more skilled woodworker could drill holes in the top of one headboard/footboard and the bottom of the other, then use a dowel pin to secure the beds together. This would provide a seamless look, and allow the beds to be taken back apart into single units.
