while browsing amvets, we came across this awesome cradle! after seeing that the wood was sturdy and that it wasn't falling apart, the girls and i knew we needed it. we had just been admiring the cute little white cradles at pottery barn kids a few months ago. so this was a perfect solution!
we pulled out the paintbrushes and paint and got to work!
the girls were so excited to beautify their new cradle. and they did a great job painting! minimal paint on body parts (which was quite shocking) and nice semi-even strokes on the painting object.
after about fifteen minutes of painting, it looked like this. of course, i helped a little bit, but really they did most of it. since this photo, we have painted two more coats on, and just need to spray a finish on it! girls, get your baby dolls ready!
