Made 3 Canopy beds for our granddaughters for Christmas, also included, their own American Girl doll and bedding. Beds made from pine, my wife painted them and made the tulle (Thanks Honey) then I sprayed clear coat on them.

Wow.. that’s a generous gift! Those American Girl Dolls are expensive! Nice job on the Canopy beds.. I’m sure the Grand daughters will get lots of use out them!

Do you by chance have any “plans” for this you could share? I owe my niece a Christmas present after my ill-fated attempt to make her a simple jewelry box ended up in bits and pieces around the shop floor (with, for good measure, a chunk lodged in the drywall) due to an inability to properly cut a miter. :)

-- May the good Lord help me if I ever actually have a shop, garage or basement.

Here is the link,

FYI: were it says to cut boards to 18”, cut them to 20” long at least, dolls are 18” tall.

Good Luck

Thanks for posting. I have requests for similar for my girls Newberry Dolls. Nice simple design and another reason to head to the workshop. Cheers!
