Quietude Quilts Doll or Photo Prop Bed

Taryn (Maplelea Girl), Alex (MyAG) and Kanani (GOTY 2011) are having fun hanging out on the new bed that Quietude Quilts sent us to review! I’m going to do a review of the bed first, but scroll down to enter to win one of their gorgeous quilt sets for your dolls! Then in the next few weeks we are going to switch it up and I will do a review of a quilt set and we’ll giveaway one of these beautiful doll beds!

The Quietude Quilts doll beds are handmade and arrive in a large flat shipping box. The beds are made using strong traditional woodworking joinery which means that they don’t use any nails or screws and there is no metal or plastic.  The bed was very easy to assemble and only required a little bit of wood glue in the joints to make it sturdy.  (The wood glue is not included because it’s illegal to put in the mail.) Start to finish the bed took less than 10 minutes to assemble then we let the glue dry for a few hours before letting the dolls test it out.

One of the things I like about the Quietude Quilts beds is that they use old-fashioned milk paint that is produced locally in their area, which is 100% organic and chemically safe – and you can pick from about 20 different colors. The other fun thing about the doll beds is that they are not just for dolls. The beds make adorable props for photographing infants and toddlers and even pets like cats and small dogs.  A very limited number of the beds are made each week and they often sell out before the shop is restocked on Sunday evenings.

If you are looking for a high quality doll bed for your dolls now and as an heirloom later, the Quietude Quilts beds are a great choice.

And now on to the giveaway! Look at these cuties!
