As mentioned in my previous post, I'm currently recovering from a giant butt-kicker of a summer and fall and am trying to get back to work. I have a couple of projects brewing, but one of them poses a conundrum for me. It's this beauty here:
An awesome vintage solid wood crib with beautiful detail and inset panels on each end. I about hyperventilated and peed my pants when I found it. I swear, if Zoe wasn't halfway through her crib usage, it would be hers.
It is totally sturdy, with all metal parts. Tyler laughed that its probably in better shape than either of the plastic-part cribs our kids have slept in. I have amazing plans dancing through my head. So here is the question of the hour: If you felt that it was completely safe and sturdy, would you buy and use a vintage crib? What if it was all rebuilt? Or is it better used in a re-purposed way? I also have some ideas floating around for that, but I would love love love to refinish and sell it as a crib. I just think it's gorgeous. Please people! Give me some input!
And there's also this little girl with her guts hanging out. Hopefully I can remedy that. Stay tuned.
