A New Project

I admit it! I cheated!

Challenge #52 is to "Make a bed for Rascal's dolls".
If I'm honest about this, it was never going to happen. So I did the next best thing, I bought a secondhand dolls crib on Trademe.
Sorry about the photos, hubby hid the cot in the attic before I had a chance to take decent photos and i didn't feel like carting it back down the ladder.
It needs a bit of work. 
I will have to give it a good scrub; possibly give it a coat of paint; make a mattress, a pillow and some bedding.

Really looking forward to having this wee project to get my teeth into. 
I promise I'll keep you posted on my progress.

  2. I love all your challenges and I'm really looking forwards to seeing how this one works out. I'm a bit slow on the uptake, did you write a list at the begining of the year and then work through them? Such a great thing to do, miles more fun than a new years resolution I'm thinking...

  3. This is super cute - I brought one off TM last year for Tsunami and had the best time painting it and making bedding quilts etc

  6. As Cat said, painting and creating for it is a project within itself, so I don't think it is cheating using an already set crib because by the time it is given it will look totally different so will have been created just for her.
