I made his baby blanket out of 2 pieces of chenille and some brown yarn. His bumper pads are brown chenille and they are so soft!
This is my grandmothers milk glass lamp that I painted blue where there was wood. I still need to do the fabric shade.

This is an old candelier that I got for $10 at an antique show . They were asking more, but it was bent so they came down. It is perfect for her room and I don't mind that it's bent. I am not into perfect!
Here is the "little princess" in her room. I got the toybox at a garage sale for $5! I added the scalloped molding and the two frames with the chalkboard and chenille fabric. Then I added the handles and voila! A cute girly, toybox..
This is a sign I made from an old door panel.
This is her bed. I cut the full chenille coverlet to twin size and used the rest to make the sham etc...The bed I bought at a local antique store for $40 and painted it white.
This is an old window that my friend painted on and I added some shutters that I painted pink and my grandmother's hankies are the curtains. This is hanging above her bed.
My friend, Elise, helped me with ideas to turn the cupboard into a kitchen. I hope to pass this one down to the grandchildren. I love to play with it too!
