Day #729 (Mon., Jan. 2, 2012) – Testing The Baby Doll Crib Components

I took Katie to the “Dragon Park” (see photo to the right) for a change this morning. I’ve been going to the playground near Lochmere quite a bit as of late so I thought I would try this one out for a change. Katie loved the green baby swing the most. Unlike most of the other baby swings where you are suspended in a harness, this one lets you recline on a bed of sorts and swing away. I had a hard time getting Katie out of it. She also played on the slide quite a bit…then we went home.

Before I actually start building the baby doll crib I want to test out the various components. For example, will I need to fill the wood and sand it before I spray paint it? How does the trim fit on the edge of the plywood? Will the clear gloss “melt” the flowers I want to put on the headboard. No time like the present to test all this out so I got some scrap wood and tested out the components. The Result? Looks like I will need to fill the wood with wood filler and sand it down before painting it. There are just too many imperfections.

I made Katie some quesadilla this evening. She loves to have food to hold onto…but she also loves to pick out the black beans from the “innerds”.
