(Pictorial) Log Cabin Dollhouse- Building rope/trundle beds

We started building and designing period furnishings for this cabin.

Historically, a cabin this size would have housed (on average) a family or up to 11 or more!!!

Trundle rope beds were in order… a single sized bed like that could have slept (I’m not kidding) 2 grown people or quite a few children!

I made all of the bedding out of vintage linens and stuffed it with ‘straw’ (actually, tea leaves).

We tried our hand at a stool with a woven rope seat, but cut it wrong (too tall) and now it is a side table.

I also made a teeny ‘fire’ for the fireplace
