Usually when someone spends the time and effort on a makeover it’s because the original object is ugly or in bad shape. Neither is true in this case. Laura made over a brand new and super cute toy to appeal to both her daughter and her son.
Terrific! Here’s what Laura had to say about this project:
I wanted to find a good quality wooden stroller that both my son and daughter could play with. Not that my son doesn’t enjoy wearing a tutu as much as the next kid, but being the younger sibling, most of the toys in our home are already in one shade of pink or another.
I found this Hape Doll Stroller for a really decent price, so I bought it and gave it a little makeover. The fabric is a canvas from Joanne’s and the paints are sample pots from Home Depot. I copied the pattern of the existing seat fabric to make mine. Then I hand painted over all the pink paint. Thankfully the little balls on the tray came off easily so I could paint those as well and the pink rubber strips around the wheels peeled right off.
I’m pleased with the results and so are the kids!
