Crafting a Shelf Into a DIY Barbie Loft Apartment -#1 The Find

I was just saying I'd like to somehow build a Barbie house out of an unusual item and saw this sturdy circa 1970's stand/shelf on the curb one day... My first thought was to have an upstairs and downstairs; livingroom, kitchen, bed and bath. But then I thought it might be fun to have a kitchenette and living area downstairs, and a roof deck... You know, for tailgating and outdoor parties:) I don't know what I'll come up with, but I plan to decorate for the holidays and create small furniture and items to share DIY ideas. I'm tickled to have something new ~and free~ to play with!

The first thing I added was my Crochet Bear Skin Rug, directions here, we'll see if there's still room for it after a couch, etc. Other fun additions, the  Dollar Tree chair here and pipe cleaner puppy here.
I'll update the progress occasionally, this cast-off stand was the catalyst for finally starting this Barbie blog.
I hope you'll follow along and help build enthusiasm for this new blog!

~Make something just for fun and have a happy day!
