I'd like to reuse a wood crib for something both because it's environmentally friendly and financially so
It's an older crib so it isn't very desirable to give away (Goodwill actually refused it!). It's a little worn, but solid wood and the spindle looking Jenny Lind style, so I know it could be something beautiful, esp if I sanded it and cleaned up the wood a bit, or painted it. It was originally my husband's crib, so it would be nice to keep it around for that reason too.
It looks exactly like this:http://www.babyuniverse.com/pro/baby...dCrib-Oak.html
I've thought of something using it to make playstands, or headboards for two twin beds (although it isn't the same width exactly). My girls are going to be moving to twin beds probably sometime in the next year, so that and the playstands are already potentially on the "to buy" list. It would be great to reuse something instead of buying something new.
Has anyone come across a way to reuse an old crib to make something Waldorf-inspired or just in general, beautiful? We have some woodworking skills, but I'm no master carpenter
