We co-sleep but my DD has a crib at her grandma's house for times she stays over there. DD has outgrown the crib and I'd like to do something else with the very pretty pink/green floral crib bumper. I could put it on Craig's List but I'd rather find some other use for it in our home.

Any ideas....?

Thanks.

We used a crib bumper to wrap around our trunk/coffee table in the living room when DD was little.

Thanks. That's a good idea except my DD doesn't need that kind of protection anymore.

Maybe I'll make some cushions for her bed out of the bumper...

Could you attach it to a wall. With a couple of cushions it would make a nice reading corner.

Hey, that's something we could do. She likes to read and it would work since a lot of the other stuff in her room have the same colors. Thanks!

I think if you cut it to size you could make a couple (or three) window valances for the nursery. I'd think you could even use the ties to just tie them to the curtain rods.
