Living in an old farmhouse with so much charm has been really fun. Our home has crown molding throughout, amazing old wood doors, large baseboards and old windows. While the windows are really fun and add to the charm of our house they don’t bode well for keeping the house warm in the winter or cool in the summer as they are all painted shut. More and more houses in our neighbourhood are removing the old windows and putting in new more energy efficient windows. We haven’t gotten there yet but it will definitely be in our future.
Last week I got inspired to take the crib down and refashion it into something different. As usual my inspiration came from Pinterest and I wrote briefly about it here before starting the project.
This was my inspiration:
Its such a great use for a piece of furniture that can no longer be used for its original intent.
In our case we were given a crib by my mom in the hopes that my son would sleep in it. Well that never happened so we have had an assembled crib just hanging out in Sophie’s room for months unused. The moment I saw this picture I knew we had to recreate it with our crib.
