This plain white cradle was a gift from my father along with a cute table and chair set that is also white. The table and chairs are also in need of a transformation but that will have to wait. At any rate, I never did anything with this doll cradle when my daughter was younger, so it just sat and collected dirt and dust as she got older.
Since Lillian's room decor includes some pink and green, I decided to incorporate those colors (along with a butter yellow) into painting the cradle.
I decided to personalize the doll cradle so I added Lillian's name along with some embellishments that I found at Michael's.
I also added the word "baby" because Lillian uses it so often in her vocabulary. She takes her "babies" for walks around the house, and now she will have a place for them to go "night-night" while she takes a nap!
The trim at the bottom of the cradle is actually duct tape in a new snazzy design!
I'm not crazy about this side of the cradle and I wish I was more creative in using the self-adhesive embellishments. I'm the type of person that has to see something and "borrow" ideas...I just can't seem to create on my own!
