I decided to repaint my wooden dolly closet I bought, back in July, here... Trust me, it was hard.
I started with spray painting it a baby blue last week. It took about two coats, but I think it turned out nicely. Sorry no photos of the process. I waited a bit longer than after 24 hours to go to the next step. That was only because, I wanted to be sure of what I was going to do next?
So, I started on finding a knob that would look cute on it. I bought a diamond round knob from the 100yen shop here, sadly, the screw was too wide for it to go into the hole. So, instead I just used the yellow thumb tack, that I already had on it. I added wood glue and some small sections of toothpick wood to keep the tack in place.
Afterwards, I had to decide if I was going to actually use the vintage meyercord decals I got a few months back... At first, I was going to use the one that I wouldn't mind, if it got damaged. Then, it hit me, nope, I'm going to use the one I love and do my best. Keeping my fingers crossed that it does work... I took a bowl of water as per the instructions, placed the cut decal I wanted to use and soaked it in the water, I waited a few minutes and the paper started to curl. I held it open and tried to wait a bit longer. Sure enough the paper stopped curling and I could feel the decal loosen and eventually I was able to remove it. I lifted it out of the water and started to place it onto the wood, slowly sliding it and trying my best to set it straight. I couldn't move it any more, so I started to dab with the paper towel and allowed it to dry. After about 5 minutes and no water on the it. I sprayed Mr. Super Clear Gloss to seal.
I was done!! Yay!
I also received this cute vintage Japanese children's book. I love the plush bunny baby on the cover.
