Restyled Doll Furniture
I’m still here! I know it has been forever since I last posted and I am truly sorry about that. Recently my best friend passed away following heart surgery. Sitting down to write anything has been extremely difficult, but here goes.
My husband and I went to an auction last month and we hit the jackpot. I had a customer asking for doll furniture so these little gems had to come home with me.
Surprise, surprise. I seemed to be the only one interested in them and I got them for a song.
Everything needed repairs, but nothing major. After cleaning and sanding they got a base coat of white paint.
I distress-sanded everything, but the highchairs needed a little something, something to make them more special. I decided to dry brush with pink paint and I made a stencil of a rattle for the chair backs.
The little bags on the chairs are little totes I made that I filled with a toy baby bottle, plate and spoon.
The baby bed received more than a paint makeover. I recovered the base board with blue ticking, then made a mattress using a white chenille bedspread. Lastly, I made a pillow and doll blanket using an old vintage cutter quilt.
Check out this doll baby buggy. I haven’t done anything with it and I don’t know if I will. I’m kinda thinking I’ll keep it and use it to display crafts at shows. I think it’s adorable.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
