Trash to Treasure...New Ebay Listing

I knew once I saw this colonial looking doll cradle at the local thrift store it would look great painted and distressed.

So I brought it home and started working on it. I painted it a robins egg blue and did my distressing technique on it. After it was all primmed up I thought it needed a blue ticking sawdust filled pillow and a prim sawdust filled doll to go along with it. I then started to work on the pillow and the doll. Here is my finished primitive set that I just listed on Ebay. Click here to see more pictures.

I will call this one my trash to treasure! What do you think?

I love it you did a wonderful job. I've got one of these in a yucky brown color. Think I've now got the inspiration from you to do something with it!

Oh that is just perfect. Funny if you look at just the pictures you'd think you had this old blue crib them restored it brown...lmao.

Of course I love the prim way better. I wish I could learn to distress something. Of course I do not have anything to do it to...lol

Maybe someday! Love the robin egg color.
