Childhood Cradle Restyled

As you all know by now… I love giving new life to old things. I especially enjoy restyling items that were loved by clients when they were young.

Carrie played with this toy cradle when she was a little girl. It was a little stained and in need of an update.



After looking at my sample boards, Carrie chose Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Henrietta, a beautiful rich pink. I suggested a stencil on both ends in Annie Sloan Antoinette, a softer pink, and I was so happy that she agreed. It is finished in Annie Sloan Clear Wax.


Now Ruby, Carrie’s daughter, will have years of playing with the toy cradle that her mom played with. There is nothing better than seeing your child love something that you did as a child! Thank you, Carrie, for trusting me with this special heirloom!
