Leslie’s Lovin It – DIY Bathtub Barbie Doll Boat

When I was little, I loved playing with Barbies. I had a townhouse, car, and vacation home. A Barbie bar wasn't available so I made my own out of a clock radio (bar with DJ) and deodorant cans (bar stools). I'm sure that is NO surprise to you that I needed a bar for my Barbies.
