DIY Rocking Baby Scooter

Matt has gotten handy with wood projects in the last few years (did I ever show you the cute and study bench he built for our porch?) and we couldn't think of anything store bought to get Piper for Christmas that the grandparents weren't already buying.  So when I found these adorable rocking scooter plans on, I pretty much told him he was making it for her.  I helped with the painting, though.

It turned out so well and she likes it!  It was pretty affordable since Matt just had to buy some wood and screws, I think.  Oh, and I bought silver acrylic paint to do the headlamp and the side detail.  The blue paint on the body is the same color as the walls in her room, the off-white on the seat was a free sample and the black we had from painting some stools years ago.

Here she is riding on Christmas day.  She looks very serious, doesn't she?
