I make BJD furniture, I have some listed
(Prices have since changed since their postings and are subjected to changes based on material costs) 
I've been asked by a few people what I make... and I make the following. 

Couches and Chairs (living room sets) with throw pillows and afghans. 
Coffee tables. (made from Balsa wood) 
End Tables (Balsa wood) 
Bed frames (some from pine/balsa wood and more) 
Mattresses
Bed sheet sets and Pillows  
Kitchen table sets (balsa and pine) with TWO (2) Chairs! *each added chair and extra inch to the kitchen table costs more!* 
*NOTE* IF and only if I can get ceramic cut I can make Faux marble topped kitchen tables as well. These are WAY more expensive! 
Fair warning now! 

I'm always asked costs and I say the same thing every time... It depends on a few factors. 

The frame and it's construction for the couches and chairs and mattresses is made of ONE of the three possible materials.

Cardboard (cheaper) 
Coraplast (Moderate) 
Wood (expensive) 
(*Coraplast is plastic that resembles cardboard but it is waterproof) 

It also depends on the size.

Mini's - couch is about the size of a standard school scribbler.
(8 inches long, 6 inches high with a 3 inch seat base)
Moderate ones are the same size as the one I made HEREto fit a 30 - 44 CM doll.
(These are about 20 inches long, 12 inches high with a 4 inch seat base.) 

Large ones will fit dolls about 60 Cms (32 inches long, 16 inches high with a 5 inch seat base)
Extra large will fit 70 cm and up. (38 inches long, 18 inches high with a 5 inch seat base) 


Then fabric is also included in the needs; with your color choice of course
Plain or patterned cotton (Cheap) 
Valore (imitation crushed velvet) (moderate priced) 
Tweed/twill - (Moderate priced) 
Silk (higher priced) 
Velvet (higher priced) 
Leather (VERY Expensive) 

The one I made that I show is about $150 I decidedly lowered the price to 80$  (For now) It's made with Cardboard, with valore and is a moderate sized one. If it was coraplast frame I'd ask $100 - $175 and if it was wood I'd ask $120 - $210 (With the valore fabric) this includes my labor and the cost of the adhesives/stuffing I use to make them. 

All of my furniture pieces are quite professional looking in their construction and are quite hardy (yes even the cardboard ones) next is my bed mattresses.  T
hey to are made with cardboard/coraplast and or wood or a combination of any 2 along with quilting cotton, canvas and dorma cord. Mattress showen HERE is "Twin" and large enough to fit a 18-20" doll (44cms) 
Mattresses are for sale. *custom made to order* Listed prices are below. Sizes are approximate. 
Minis CAN be made but are custom sized! 

Sized for 18-24" dolls             Sized for 28" dolls
(40-60 cm dolls)                    (70- cm Dolls) 

Canvas                               Canvas
$55 - Twin                     $65 - Twin
$65 - Double                  $75 - Double
$75 - Queen                   $85 - Queen
$100 - King                    $110 - King

Cotton                                Cotton
$50 - Twin                     $60 - Twin 
$60 - Double                  $70 - Double
$70 - Queen                   $80 - Queen 
$90 - King                      $100 - King 

Satin                                   Satin
$75 - Twin                     $85 - Twin
$95 - Double                  $105 - Double
$110 - Queen                 $120 - Queen 
$125 - King.                   $135 - King 


ALL order require a deposit of HALF the cost, this deposit isn't refundable... Cancelling will result in the loss of this deposit as I do "made to order" and will have to finish the product anyway. (and I'm then stuck with it till I actually sell it) 
Color choices for mattresses are not an option at this time. Only fabric types. (you can request a color this doesn't mean I will have it) 
Please ask if you're in need of more info.
Tables and chair sets are based on how many chairs and length of table.

Mini sets 1 kitchen table (wood) with 2 chairs is about $45 it is painted ONE of Three colors 
White, Black or Brown. For EVERY extra chair add $5 and for every extra added inch of length to your table 
please add another $5.

Moderate sized sets are $75 and again painted in one of three colors White, Black or brown. 
For every extra chair needed add $7 for every extra inch of length of table add $5 
Chairs come with hand made cushions as an extra bonus! (NO COLOR CHOICE!) 

Large sets for for the 70 CM BDJS are $100 and again painted one of 3 colors White, Black or Brown. 
For every extra chair needed add $10 and for every extra inch of length of table needed add $5 
Chairs come with hand made cushions as an extra bonus (NO color Choice) and a table cloth. 

IF clients want something special painted on the top of their tables they can request it... IF and only IF
I can do the request will I charge extra for this custom job. It will be based on the detailing and time 
it takes to finish. 

EXTRA items I can make. (some are polymer some are fabric or paper) 
Teddy bears, Books, Lamps, Fruit bowls, cups, plates, plants, vases with roses ... ect... just ask if I can make it. 

I KNOW there will be people saying... OMG the prices are hideous! My response is... You wouldn't want someone asking you to work free would you? If you think that the only thing that goes into making the items I've listed are the materials then you need to understand that an artists talents also go into making our items, along with a great deal of time! If you as an artist think you can do just as good of or even better job then by all means please, go ahead! I love artists who can mater many mediums, I do :) I'm sure there will be many others out there willing to see and buy your work to :) (Just remember not to undercut yourself, you need to be paid to! OK) 

Anyway for now this is my base items and prices. PLEASE ask questions here so others can see them in case they are thinking the same things. Readers please... read through the comments in case there's a question already asked and answered :)
