Barbie Bed is finally finished

Ok here is a pic of the Barbie bed I made over for my granddaughter for Christmas. I decided to paint it out white. It took several coats to cover the multi-colored paint job it had when I found it at the second hand shop. I then decided to cover the "mattress" with Con-Tact paper. I found some great white with pink Pooka-dot contact paper at Big Lots. Once that was covered I hot glued the gathered pink lace to the sides like a bed ruffle. I cut out the Barbie sign on heavy card stock using my Gypsy and glued it to the "head board". It was a lot of fun to revamp. I know she will enjoy placing her Barbie's to sleep on it each night. Her Mom plans to hang it in her room. We decided not to make pillows or covers. Mom had night mares just thinking about having to keep up with all that. This shall do just fine.
Before Pic cost $7.00

In Progress, several coats of paint
paint cost $3.00

I took wood putty and covered up the engraving
then covered the Head Board with contact paper
Coat of wood putty $3.00

Cost of Con-tac paper $2.00

Trash to Treasure  cost: $15.00                    
 Labor of Love   cost :  Hugs and Kisses

I love it~Terri

Merry Merry Christmas!

Hello Everyone
Merry Merry Christmas!!!

I'm hoping everyone has a great Holiday!. Here is a pic of my small tree. I love the red and white. With work and family obligations I will be very busy the next few weeks. I will be back after the holidays to wish everyone a Happy New Year!!!! May God bless you all.

Here is a pic of the Barbie Bed I am revamping for my granddaughter. It was once used for someone's Beanie Babies. Kimberlee will be using it for all her Barbie's. I will post a pic after Christmas of her New Barbie Bed to let you see how it turned out. I plan to paint the side's white. The bed part will be Barbie pink. I will make small covers and pillows for each tier. I want to use gathered lace around each bed frame like a bed ruffle. We will be what all I get done. It may only get painted. Time is moving faster than I am!!
Happy Holidays!!!
