For Adelyn's 3rd birthday, she got a Cabbage Patch Kid and named her Baby Sarah (Sarah Adelyn to be exact). She has been asking for a bed to lay her in ever since. We're trying to save money, so I keep putting her off. I was honestly about to decorate a cardboard box with markers when I remembered I had this wine crate (from our wedding SEVEN years ago). PLEASE NOTE, I am NOT a crafty person, but just wanted to share this project I did, because they don't happen very often. This was super cheap, as I already had the crate, paper, Mod Podge, and foam brush. The only thing I bought was ribbon and decorative pieces. I spent about $10.
|I measured the paper and brushed the crate with Mod Podge to adhere the paper.|
|The paper has 2 coats of Mod Podge|
|I let Adelyn choose the ribbon. It's not what I would have chosen, but this is also not for me. She loves sparkles and pink. I call this Preschool Diva meets Shabby Chic|
|I thought it needed a little more pizazz so I added these "diamonds" to the corners|
|I used an old pillow, covered it with a pillowcase Adelyn made at VBS, and added the small pillow and blanket.|
|Shhh...Adelyn is putting Baby Sarah to sleep. I'd love to add rockers to the bottom.|
