    Actually my aunt who gave me this doll bed when I was a little girl bought it from a lady who used it as a cat bed. My cat's never been interested! So no, don't need a pet bed.

    Cats might not, but a dog would love it!

    Let's see...magazine holder, bookshelf, place to store newspapers until ready to tie up to send out to recycling, with waterproof lining, a place to display potted plants, with decorative basket, a place to put just about anything....and I'm assuming you don't want to take it apart.

      Um, like the planter idea, and I wouldn't be opposed to taking it apart but that's beyond my carpentry ability

    "Flower bed" for a porch or deck? Though this is a pretty obvious use.

    This would make an awesome foot stool for an antique chair or rocker. It's absolutely beautiful !

    Think it is absolutely charming. I'd buy an antique doll for it.

    I Agree - don't take it apart or "destroy" it with paint or potential water damage. If it fits on a dresser, how about using it to display perfume, photos, old hairbrush and mirror set, small jewelry box?

    Likely to have value. New wooden doll beds are hard to find and very expensive. This one is tooooo nice to mess it up. You might want someone to look at it to give you the value before taking it apart. If you want to sell it, let me know. I've been looking for one like this forever.

    Sell it - don't destroy a rare item like that !

    It looks like it would fit a roasting pan. If so it would make a beautiful succulent planter since they can grow in a very shallow planter. It would be beautiful with some succulents hanging over the sides and building in height.
