Bob and I went to this huge garage sale a little while ago. I am talking the size of an elementary school people rush the gate huge.We found a few great things but my favorite was this doll bed for $4. It was solid wood and perfect for a newborn photography prop. All it needed was a little fixing up. In case you haven't seen them photo props like this sell for around $60 so I was pretty happy to find my own. I did add on a new mattress.
Bob thinks this first picture makes Scarlett look like a giant. Like she is on Gullivers travels or something. Below is what the bed originally looked like.
I didn't really like the pink and purple. I wanted something a little more neutral. I used spray paint I already had, sanded, and redid the entire thing white. Quick and easy.
Now the bed is very cute, but it is a doll bed. The purple material is over a piece of wood. It is very hard and not ideal for a newborn. So I decided to just go ahead and make my own doll bed mattress and sheet to set right on top.
