I have 2 projects that I have been wanting to do for some time. I tried to do them before Christmas but that didn't happen. I figure if I post about them, I will commit to doing them. So here goes.

Project #1
See this darling little doll high-chair?
Ya, I bought it from the D.I. for $2 dollars last May. I have been wanting to make a tray for it and fix it up for Ayla to play with.

Project #2
This cute little doll bed. I got this at Savers for $4.

Do you see why I wanted to get them done before Christmas? Well now I have 3 reasons to get them done soon:

1- Ayla's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I want to give them to her for her birthday.

2- I have posted about them on the blog now. So I have committed to them and plus it makes it more fun to share the progress with them with you.

3- They are taking up the table by the door and I can't stand anything on this table. So just more motivation to get them done.

I have already made some progress with them.

I bought a board to make the tray for the high-chair.

I bought the foam for the mattress and the material I need to cover the foam. Notice the material matches the material on the high-chair? Ya, I plan on painting them both white and have them match. You know, like a little set.

I also bought some screws to make the little bed sturdier. And of course I bought a sand block to sand every thing.

Well that is all I have done right now! Stay tuned for more!
