DUKTIG bunkbed for dolls

Ikea Duktig bunk bed 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.

    Ikea should take a note from you, and redesign these beds to be stackable!

    They work great as our dog’s bed too! Just put a round super soft dog bed on it!

    Great job! So cute. This is what we’ll be doing if our doll collection ever expands. Thanks for sharing.
