Children's Toys: Cradles, Rocking Chair and Ironing Board

Drop over and visit Chris, a recently retired librarian whose blog is Retired and Loving It

Linking to:

Some earlier autumn painting of small furniture - a muted green latex, finished with clear wax.  I saved these 'child size' play furniture pieces for November Christmas present suggestions.
Rocking Chair and Sturdy Cradle joined the other painted furniture in my booth
Rocker and spindle cradle before
For some reason I didn't take a 'before' picture of the solid cradle before painting

(I've seen these used as small dog 'beds' as well)
Painted child size ironing board before and after


  1. Oh, I love that color. Can you tell me what it's called. And what do you use for your wax? Your site is so inspiring to "just do it".

  2. What a HUGE difference paint makes!!! You are SUCH a pro!!! Love how you redeem so many things!

  3. These are adorable!! I just love that color -- a soft, child-like color yet pretty enough to be on display in any part of the house! Great job!

  4. how beautiful, I use to paint old furniture, and loved doing it, just let other things take my time now!

  5. These are beautifully transformed, how lovely to give them a new lease of life, fresh and ready for a new owner.Lovely colour!
