jail cell to modern baby crib
i love this modern baby crib from mary and hubby. goes to show a little creativity goes a long way.
“my husband and i were in desperate need of a crib, we wanted something modern, but within our budget. but modern cribs meant we’d have to shell out a load of cash. so we looked into ikea and found the almost perfect gulliver crib, except for the fact that it looked like a mini jail cell. of course, ikea had none in stock. we luckily found a used one on craigslist.
we bought some nice laminated wood and cut new end panels, using the old end piece as a
template for all the screw holes. we milled out a little design detail and we had a unique modern crib.”
one lucky baby!
