Gorm turned into Doll bench


My daughter has so many dolls and loves to play with them. To make sure they all get the attention they deserve ;-) I have converted a standard Gorm into a double bench.

It took me a few hours to get to this stage and she just loves it.

How did he do it? Here’s how:

  1. Cut the legs in half;
  2. remove one of the boards of two of the shelfs;
  3. attach a seccond shelf at a 90 degree angle to the first, use the regular bolts to fasten it;
  4. attach the bottem self / bench to the back leg;
  5. make hole for the top one;
  6. tilled backwards and secure with a screw;
  7. attach the front legs to the side of the benches;
  8. make arm rests for the dolls so they do not fall out.

The process is simple, transferring the angle of the bech to the arm rest can be a bit tricky.

Tools used:

  • handsaw;
  • chissel;
  • tapemessure;
  • square;
  • screwdriver.

I hope this entry will inspire a lot more people, enjoy your day.
