Ice Cream Parlor Stand

A couple of years ago, the girls got this little grocery stand for Christmas:
As you can see, it's gotten a little beat up.
The paint was in bad shape and the bottom shelf is completely broken out.
I wanted to use it for Cassy's Ice Cream Parlor party
so Daddy Did It and I got to work.
Some disassembling, sanding, priming, and painting later
We ended up with THIS: 
Oh yeah, I did a little sewing, too.
I'll tell you how I made the custom canopy in a later post.
So, what do you think?
I tell ya, the girls LOVE it!  It's like a brand new toy...one that appeals more to the girly nature of our house!
And it worked great as a stand to hold the gifts and favors...also coming in a later post.
