I have seen so many ARTSY bloggers using old baby dresses in their decor and I guess after looking at pics on their blogs and flickr sites I fell in love with the idea.
I spotted this old little girls cotton dress at the Rt.57 antique mall and just had to have it.
It is absolutely beautiful. The picture barely does it justice.
I am looking for a smaller old wooden hanger for it but for now I hung it from an adult-size wooden hanger. I love the little cabinet card hanging over it.
It has a couple condition issues~ a small green(marker?) stain and a little tear. The stain I would like to remove but I kind of find the little tear endearing~ so I am not going to mend it. Any suggestions for how to clean up the marker stain? Just a good hand washing??
Or some other product? Your suggestions would be highly appreciated as I know many of you have done this sort of thing before.
Also last weekend I painted some cabinets that I have had for a long time and always meant to paint...well, I finally did it!!! Old with the old..and in with the new...
After: WHITE PIE SAFE!!!
I love it :)
