I thought this bed was also available on Ana's site, but it was a previous brag post submitted by the builder (I think her name is Brook?) and referred back to her blog. Here's her brag post:

The larger sized plans are available on Ana's site. It's really not that much different from the farmhouse doll bed and it's called the Lydia Doll Bed. I didn't add the side molding and built the box where the mattress sits following Ana's farmhouse doll plans. I also simplified the design on the decorative curved pieces because I didn't want to bother with sanding a more intricate design. I had elves in the workshop this year. My sisters came to visit with brother's-in-law and one brother-in-law routed the top head and footboard piece to give it more pizzaz. We built several for my annual church craft show.

Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used: 
Primer and Linen White by Benjamin Moore. Unfortunately it needed two coats plus touch ups, so probably guestimate 3 coats.
