A little project

I scored this adorable little dolls cot on ebay a couple of weeks back. Needless to say it was in a sad condition and in need of a fresh coat of paint & a new fabric on the base.

We set to work, Jemimah & I. She actually helped a lot and seemed to see the potential it had, instead of the scruffy old thing I initially arrived home with. A girl after my own heart.... :)

She got really into the sanding and painting bit!

...and I discovered tacking fabric onto the base isn't too tricky... and actually quite fun.

Here's the result of our efforts...


I sewed a little cloud cushion to go in it out of an old vintage pillow case I picked up...

 and how could I not include this cheeky face...?

There's nothing quite like the satisfaction of giving an old, discarded piece a new lease of life. :)
