    Such a fantastic idea! Whenever my crib is done being a crib I'll be able to make two matching headboards for my little girls' room!

    Awesome idea and I love the results! You're doing the same thing as me with my sister…repurposing things to save $$…it's kinda fun to see what you can come up with on a little budget!

    Crafty repurposing! I did a similar thing with my upholstered headboards — I used old canvas stretchers instead of the crib.

    Its nice when its light because then you don't have to be too worried about securing it to the wall!

    wow that is amazing! Other headboard tutorials always seem so intimidating to me, but this one seems completely doable!

    You amaze me! You're like the interior design version of the winner of Project Runaway – being creative and finding ways to rework things others would have just thrown away.

    If you wanted, you could run a series here – people could submit a picture of something they have and they're planning to throw away but you could give them ideas to re-purpose them. That could be fun 🙂

    Super idea! Thank you so much for that tip on using an egg crate mattress pad instead of foam. I honestly had planned to buy foam tomorrow for a back pad on a rocking chair. This will work so much better!!

    Baby cribs should be safe for the babies. You can't sacrifice safety with beauty anyways.

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
