This is what I did today outside of watching kids, cooking and cleaning at the day care. I've had it in my mind to create an "outdoor" space for the Barbie house since I started this. MyFroggyStuff on youtube has a lot of instructional videos on many how to's of the Barbie world. I got this from the Secret Garden video. Here are my pictures along the way today.
You take your glue gun and blob on "rocks".
I decided I probably didn't have enough glue sticks to do the whole box so I cut out windows to save space and glue.
Some of her videos say to line the edges with paper and glue sticks for a finished look... so I did.
It literally took me all morning long, including stopping for kid stuff, to make the glue rocks and my hand was taking a beating from it!
During naptime I got to work painting. Gray first to get the mortar and base coat on the rocks.
Then dabbing of neutral colors and whites around the windows.
And leftovers for lunch.
I placed the faux grass astro turf that I got from my sister in to check the look.
For my window filler I decided to print off pretty pictures of the sky until my printer ran out of ink. So I broke open the Lucky Charms box and painted my own.
I bought this vine bundle at Hobby Lobby along with the spray of tiny pink flowers.
I just duct taped the scene in each window. Oh And I got a stick from outside for the tree.
Not everything is beautiful from the back view.
Up close of the painted "rock".
And the finished product... until I have time to make some outdoor furniture. Enough for today!!
YAY Barbie Oasis!!!
