Captain Leo’s Cradle

WP_20140916_002 (2)WP_20140921_001 (2)    A couple of weeks ago, we found a cradle at a garage sale.  Since we were waiting on the birth of daughter Meghan’s new son, Leo Patrick,  we thought it would be perfect for him.  This banner was left over from the pirate themed baby shower and I painted the cradle in a nautical type theme.  You can’t see very well, but the white trim on the cradle is made to look like a rope.  I used blue and cream milk paint and used a bit of silver glaze to highlight the trim.  AAArrrggghhh, Captain Leo, we are awaiting your arrival!
