A Fitting Home for our Vintage Fisher Price Little People

I thrifted this cute little shelf a while ago. As soon as I saw it, I knew what purpose it would serve. There is something about a shelf with little compartments that beckons the little kid in me. I don't much enjoy painting projects but I took my time with this one. Forcing myself to go slowly and enjoy the process. In fact, all told, this project took several months to finish (stolen moments after work, mothering and the hustle and bustle of the summer months). After it was painted, I cut and hot glued some cardstock to cover up the 'furry red stuff' that was there before.

I'm happy with this one. It was a fun project. I miss crafting! Will be starting a quilt soon for a friend's baby boy's impending arrival. I need a reminder about how good I feel when I've got something creative going on in my life! xo
