I found a vintage doll bed at an antiques store not long ago, and prettied it up for her room. It now makes a perfect "Princess and the Pea" bed for our little girl.
The bed got a coat of creamy white paint, and I added craft store finials to the posts.
You may recognize that I modeled this photo after the cover of my new favorite craft book, "Tilda's Fairy Tale Wonderland":
I used some Tilda fabrics on the mattresses:
The crown came from none other than Rosemary of Villabarnes. She's so talented!
I used a vintage veil for the canopy:
Rosemary graciously included a lovely cameo when I ordered the crown from her, so I affixed it to the headboard on the bed. So romantic!
The doll bed is placed alongside our little girl's vintage bed:
An inspiration board hangs above, reminding her to 'Wish':
This dreamy fairy queen made by Abby is just breathtaking:
I know I've mentioned before that the red scroll fabric on the back of this inspiration board came from a cloth shower curtain I got many years ago. I used it on this board as well as a quilt on her bed, pillow cover, heart sachet and backing to a cabinet. It went a long way!
I love to use our daughter's first initial to personalize the room, as on the embroidered pillow above and on this shelf:
|The 'A' crown was made by Amy!
I covered the paper mache "A" with a doily, as inspired by a Victoria magazine article. This ballerina cone was something fun to make as well:
The shelf hangs above her bed:
Also over her bed is this ribbon badge I made, inspired by a Somerset Life article by Petite Michelle Louise:
The other corner of the room holds her built-in cabinet space. This room is tiny, so the storage is much appreciated!
My first Tilda doll sits here comfortably over the radiator shelf.
I finally added wings to the doll, again personalized with embroidery of our daughter's initials:
Some Tilda bunnies add a bit of whimsy:
Thanks for stopping by this fairy tale land!
Oh, and be sure to visit Kerryanne to see her latest addition of Simply Shabbilicious Magazine. I'm so grateful she featured a sachet from my Etsy store in the magazine - thank you Kerryanne!
