Making Bed and Baby Crib for Barbie Dollhouse




About: Passionate of DIY of any kind, I am not of the trade (I am developer in computing) but I am self-taught and I like to learn new things. I decided to share my creations with you through photos and videos. I ...

Barbie now has a well equipped home but not even bed!

I propose the creation of a wood pink bed for Barbie (made with laminate floor) and a white baby crib (with wood skewers).

Video :


- Laminate wood
- Wood glue
- Paint...


- Table saw
- Drill
- Glue gun
- Scroll saw

Step 1: Baby Crib: the Sides

For the structure I used 6mm MDF.

The rounded edges are cut with a scroll saw.

Step 2: Baby Crib: Bottom Board and Top

The bottom board and the top posts are drilled to receive the bars.

I added a scotch tape on the drill bit to locate the drill depth.

Step 3: Baby Crib: Bars

The bars are cut in skewered picks.

They are glued to the wood glue.

Step 4: Baby Crib: Assembly and Paint

The elements are sanded and assembled with small wood pin.

Then the bed receives 2 coats of white paint.

Step 5: Barbie Bed: Cutting

For the bed of Barbie I recovered falls of laminate flooring.

Step 6: Barbie Bed: Notch

I made notches by letting go beyond the saw blade of a few millimeters.

Step 7: Barbie Bed: Assembly and Paint

The bottom is made in a 3mm MDF board and the assembly is made with wood glue.

With the fall I made a small bedside.

Here I painted in pale pink.

Step 8: Barbie Bed: Mattress

For the mattress I cut a piece of foam that I covered with fabrics, glued to the glue gun.

Step 9: Final

Here ! Now Barbie can invite full in her house!

    @Magic Manu le berceau est prêt juste à temps pour un remake moderne de la crèche ^^
