Park Bench After Pics

Hey everyone, I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday. I finished the park bench from Friday's post. Here are the before and after pictures. I didn't want to do too much to the chair because I love how natural it is, so I just added a few plants and flowers.

I got the bench from Value Village for only 99 cents.

Looks like Vampiro and Draculaura found a romantic spot to hang out.

My Thrift Store Finds Means New Projects...

Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing well. I want to welcome our new subscribers and friends, thank you so much for joining our blog. We are going to try to post more often. I do have a lot of projects on the go, its just a matter of getting them uploaded.

I made my weekly trip to the thrift stores, Value Village and Talize. I didn't find much, but I did get a couple of really cool finds that I can't wait to start working on.


I love this bench for the park, the Monster High dolls have been sitting on rocks but now there will be a small romantic spot in the park. I dont' want to paint the bench because I want it to be natural, but I do want to do something to it. I will probably work on it this weekend.


I also found this cute little jewellery box that would be perfect as a dresser for Draculaura, Draculily and Clawdeen's dorm room. They've been keeping their clothes in their coffins, now they'll have somewhere to put them. I'll be doing a funky paint job on it, well I hope it turns out funky not junky :). If it works out and Lola my niece likes what I've done, I will probably be doing the same with her full size dresser and room furniture, we are giving her bedroom a whole new makeover during March break.

Dorm Room Makeover

I love these dorm rooms that I made for the school house, I love that I can change them and give them little makeovers too. We are expecting new students at Skull Academy and instead of making another dorm room, I made a couple of bunk beds for Spectra and Operetta's dorm room. I don't think they will like that they have to share with two other ghouls, but I do like how the room turned out. I will be doing another video soon on the school house, there has been a few changes to the rooms.

More Jewellery Box Transformations.

Here is a couple more dollar store jewellery boxes transformations.

I keep forgetting to take pictures. The jewellery box below was natural and yes I covered up the carving on the top of the lid...I didn't want to but you can't even tell there is a carving there so why not. I covered a piece of sponge that I sized and glued it on top. Then I glued a chain around the box.

So these two jewellery boxes become seating and storage for the dorm rooms.

For this jewellery box, I added some wooden legs, added a seat, chain and some gems.

Boys Dorm Room Furniture


 Hi everyone...welcome new subscribers, thank you so much for subscribing...you are all now entered in our big Monster High doll giveaway...and all future giveaways.

What do you think of the new dorm room? I have posted about the coffin bed and popsicle stick bunk bed, here is the before and after pics for the other furniture in the room.

the night table...


I got this little jewellery box from the dollar store, it's great as a night table for the dorm room.
I glued on some wooden feet...you can use beads as well, then stained it.



I love how it looks in the room and its perfect for storing little items.


the ottoman...


This is an old watch case, I had this and was very close to throwing it away, I was actually going to strip the material from it to use on something else like a chair seat, then I thought this would be perfect as an ottoman for the boys room. All I did was add some feet to it and voila, an ottoman...I might bling it up or add a chain later, but for now it looks good.




the dresser...

I got this jewellery box from Value Village.
Great to use as a dresser for the dolls.



 I painted the front silver and glued some zebra print paper on top and the sides.



I forgot to take pictures before I glued on the little alien...:)


 Thank you for stopping by.

How to Make a Monster High Doll Vampire Coffin

Happy New Year everyone. We hope you had an amazing holiday. I worked on a few projects. Here is one of them, Vampiro's coffin. He is a new addition to the school and of course he is a vampire and needs a coffin to sleep in. Below is the pattern of the top and bottom piece. For the mattress just cut it smaller.
The measurements of the cardboard pieces are below too. If you are going to make this, please send us pictures of your finished coffin. If you are very young, please have an adult help you with the cutting because you wouldn't want to lose any fingers...it would be hard to hold your dolls without fingers :)
