American Girl Diner Table

American Girl Diner Table

Our American Girl Diner is coming along nicely.  We are almost to the finish line.  I’m sure that even after the series is over we will think of more stuff to add to it.  It always goes that way. The American Girl Diner Table was really easy. Using a few techniques we have used before and some really cool scrap book paper it turned out perfect!  It is a little bigger than the AG version, but I think the size is right on.  Also, the size will vary by what type of box lid you use.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.

    My daughter received enough AG gift cards to purchase the diner. However, it’s on back order and she won’t receive it for another 2 months. We watched your video together and we are both excited to make the table so we have an extra table for friends when The Seaside Diner if finally open for business!

    Thank you Rudy, I am going to use a wood base and wood for under the cardboard table top. Good Idea with the clear contact paper, I will use that too.

    Of course you post this after I made one the ridiculously hard way lol. It’s so cute! That scrapbook paper is perfect!

    Even though mine was a bit of a pain, I love the way it turned out. Posting it on Instagram in a minute. I made a video tutorial for it too, but I have no idea what I’m doing so it’s taking forever ?

      I LOVE yours! I wanted to do mine differently, but I also wanted girls to be able to replicate easily too. So I was really excited to see yours!
