i’m one of those little girls who never had a barbie in her life. not that i wanted one anyways. back then, i hated everything pink and frilly. i’d rather play with tanks, soldiers, cars and my favourite japanese superhero, ultraman, with his deadly specium ray … but i digress.

back to barbie, this is for you barbie lovers.

“i bought one of those storage boxes from ikea and decided to decorate it and as my room has no specific style i thought when in doubt use barbie,” gemjams posted on craftster, “all i did was paint it all, then i got the pictures i wanted (they came from a barbie book), stuck them down then covered it with varnish, you can use pva glue however it is harder to clean as it goes all sticky. for the front picture i took out the drawers then i just placed the picture on top and cut where the drawers ended. simple as that.” link.
