It was a bit of a last minute dash, but in the end I managed to finish Rascal's dolls cot in time for Christmas. I will admit that some of the paintwork is not as neat and tidy as I would like because of the rush, but I intend to tidy it up one of these days when Rascal is at preschool.
Mr Tartankiwi still laughs and shakes his head when I rave about how much better it looks now- but what does he know- bah!
The colour is "Ice Lake" Its a really light bluish greenish colour which we used on three of the walls in Rascal's bedroom. Unfortunately the colour doesn't photograph very well.
I love how it looks on the cot and how great the cot looks in her room.
As for Rascal, she is THRILLED. When she unwrapped the cot, she immediately placed her new doll (handmade by our clever friend and imaginatively named "Doll" by Rascal) in there and started rocking her.
Doll and Yo Baby now share the cot. Its a bit of a squeeze, but they don't seem to mind.
No materials were bought specifically for this project. After the initial outlay of $15.50 for the cot, all other materials (fabric, foam, paint sandpaper etc) were ones that we already owned. Not bad eh!?!
Edited to add:
Here's a before photo to remind you what it looked like.
I'm taking part in Creative Friday today.
