There are however painting jobs that I enjoy doing and I thought I might share my most recent project with you!
As previously mentioned I, like so many others have become a little bit hooked on Pinterest and what with all the other amazing images of dolls and their apparel on the interent it left me feeling like we needed some more props for our dolly wares. I looked and looked for a wardrobe that fitted my requirements but either ruinously expensive or just plain ugly I couldn't find anything ready made that I liked.
So when in these situations I sometimes decide to have a go myself! If it all goes terribly wrong well, nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say!
Exhibit A, a perfectly decent dolls wardrobe and not very expensive but it is lacking a certain something. As it was in stock at our local toy shop and I was feeling brave I decided to go for it!
Out came the sander as the pink hearts are painted on. I had half a tin of Farrow and Balls Cornforth White, a spare set of door handles and with the addition of some little wooden feet from Hobbycraft I got to work.
What do you think?
Overall I am pleased with the result and will be using this for display purposes and I suppose someone else will use it for playing! Which is fine with me.
