Planning for the arrival of your little one is the best way to spend some time before the actual big day. Designing and decorating their nursery is a wonderful way to get started as this is the place where are they are bound to spend nearly all their time. While there are some great conventional cribs to choose from, the use of a round baby crib is a trend that is quickly becoming popular. In a world where parents are more and more opting for the ‘unconventional and special’ look, a round crib makes for an ideal choice indeed.
To save space and maximize storage, reimagine your changing area. Turn the bottom of the changing table into storage. Or forego the changing table altogether and turn your baby’s dresser into a changing area (or your dresser if your room is functioning as the nursery. You can even purchase a crib-top changing table, which is a little changing area that rests securely on top of the crib. When you’re not using it, store it under the crib.
As an adult with experience in a situation like this, I can tell you that the next project is totally worth your efforts. What experience? Crawling in the crib myself to sooth a young crying lad of two. I don’t know what was worse; A.) The idea of climbing in, B.) The act of climbing in, C.) The fear of getting stuck, or D.) The fear of the crib collapsing… which would leave my sister-in-law bereft of the opportunity to complete this project come ten years down the road.
Well, once upon a time Baby, we loved you, love you still but upcycling your crib? Yeah, it wasn’t a question of if, but when it would happen. And now it’s more age appropriate for all of us. Using one whole curvaceous side of your crib attach a base frame with the cutoff legs from the other side of the crib. Next build the seat of the bench using basic two by fours and attach to the base. Sand it all down. Paint it all your desired color and once it’s all connected toss some modern pillows on it completing the look.
