Cash Register

I picked up this plastic Barbie cash register at a swap meet for .50¢... what a deal! and yes, I did talk him down from a buck *wink* When you push on the keys it opens up the drawer and says, "Thank you" along with some other phrases. My grand daughter Chloe loves to play "store"... so when I saw this I was super jazzed to get working on it to make it a little more appealing..... here is the before.
Here is the after......I used silver metal tape, blue foil and some funky stickers to jazz it up.

Barbie took to it right away, its more her style now....

I made some tiny charge cards and shopping bags....

I also printed off some tiny money from a miniature printable site and made some silver coins as well....

Along with the cash register, I made a drawer unit to hold things like merchandise and extra shopping bags....

It is actually a small nine drawer storage container that is normally used for nails and screws. That was a dollar find at the swap meet. I covered it in silver metal tape and added stickers to match the cash register. I was going to wait and give it to my grand daughter for part of her Valentines day gift or part of her birthday. But...I think I'll give it to her tomorrow and tell her its just an "I love you gift."

Wow that is quite a sensational renovation! Love all the added touches - money, bags etc. You wouldn't be interested in an extra 45yo granddaughter would you?!? Lol! Just lovely. xo Johanna

What a neat update for the cash
register. What little girl or
antique old girl wouldn't love to have this! Such a lucky granddaughter.

Wish I could think out of the box like you do. I mostly bang my head against the box :)
