Easy non-pink bed for fashion dolls - DIY tutorial

Easy non-pink bed for fashion dolls like Barbie, Monster high, small BJD's and others

IKEA items used: RIBBA frame (21×30 cm)

I wanted a modern bed for fashion dolls, but those are usually either pink or very expensive if you have them made by an artist.

The 21x30cm RIBBA frame is exactly the right size for Barbie, Monster high, small BJD’s and other fashion dolls.
As you can see in the pictures, the IKEA PS shelves can also be used as very modern dollhouses.

Here’s how:
1. Take the sheet of glass out of the frame.
2. Glue the wooden backdrop to the frame and glue black fabric on it.
