Kids Stroller Upcycle

While unpacking the house they came across Mae’s old stroller and she was obsessed she pushed it all around the house everywhere she could go, but it was very difficult considering how short she is and how tall it was. I decided to check out the local Goodwill the other day and I came across a stroller for two dollars I grabbed it right away. The seat was ripped so I knew I would have to see a new one but that wouldn’t be too hard.  Luckily I already had some fabric and spray paint at home so I just...
