I've completed my canned goods! They look adorable and I can't wait to use them in scenes. But I forgot to take pictures of the completed project before I stashed them away in my closet. My family recently moved and we are still showing off our house so my room has to be spotless. That puts a damper on my AG scenes!
I have also been working diligently on my secret project! That means a lot of painting, A LOT! And some more too :)
I am really happy with how it is turning out, but I can tell my dad is ready to be done with it. I am too, but I just don't have the right colors yet!
While at Lowe's Hardware store looking for paint I could use, I found an adorable AG sized porch swing. It's technically a bird feeder, but it is adorable! A few stitches and I can make cushions for 2 dolls to sit comfortably together. I was going to attempt to make one, but it's at the bottom of my craft list and I would probably never get to it, so for $13, I couldn't say no!
I got my paint and brush and went to it! All 24 wood pieces that I'll be using for dolly sized canned goods are painted! I only did the tops and bottoms of 16 because I have labels for those. The last 8 I painted fully so that regardless of what I decide to do with them, they'll be ready. I have some "Cola" stickers from the AG Do-It-Yourself book "Doll Travel." If you are not familiar with the the DIY books by AG, you are missing out. Not only has my craft supplies stock been utilized, I also get some great dolly sized items you would never think about! For example, I just made the doll sized cooler (those big blue chunky things you see on the beach). It was a perfect addition to Kailey's beach camp out! I'll be adding pictures of Kailey's summer fun soon! :)
The next step for my cans is to decoupage the labels on! They are so close to being finished.
