This is an idea my mother in law came up with since she makes my daughter a queen's wardrobe of doll clothes. I liked the idea but didn't have any plans so I was "winging it". Overall though it turned out awesome and my daughter loves it. My wife did the paint and decals on it and I must say that I was opposed to paint and decals at first, but in the end it is a child's toy and it looks whimsical. You dads get yourselves to the shop and steal this idea because it is a fun and rewarding project!
