a girly little makeover.

Last week Doug and I got to go on a little day date...thanks to my awesome neighbor we got to go ALONE.  Which never happens...unless we are with my in-laws. 
Anyway...while we were out we went into a not so local Goodwill and found this old little beauty...I hoped that I could make it pretty for my niece, who we get to see soon. 
Some sanding, filling and spray painting got us to a very pretty place with it. :)
I made a cute little mattress that fits right inside...along with a cute little pillow and mini-quilt!
So cute, I could nibble on them! :)
Here's a better look at the two sided quilt and the other side of the pillow. :) 
When I made this little doll (that comes in a panel of three from Patty Young) I had hoped she would fit inside nicely...but she's a little big...but I'll just assume that Ky has something that will work.

She does sit nicely inside. :)

I hope she will love her and it becomes a sweet little memory in her childhood. :) 


I've been working on lots more that I want to share so stay tuned!

p.s.  I have two dolls from THIS PANEL left.  If you would like to order a doll/outfit/mini-quilt/pillow combo be one of the first two to let me know and and I would happily make one up for you! :) Email me for details. :)

What an awesome find! Your paint job makes it quaint and just perfect for a little one ... and I love the quilt and pillow! That's one lucky little girl!

My little girl would go NUTS for it- so I'm positive your neice will just be beside herself. Really it's so pretty- that will certainly become an heirloom that she can pass down. What a find. You can even gift some different dolls or accesories for Christmas, or each birthday...

Ky said...

That is just adorable! What little girl wouldn't love that for her dolls?

wonderful and thoughtful cradle upcycle!
maybe your niece will just smash the dolly in the bed. maybe it won't be a big deal. munchkins don't usually mind if toys aren't "to scale".
