Craiglist Cradle

Craiglist Cradle
Oh, Craigslist, you never fail to disappoint. Check out this cradle that Annie found on Craigslist for $20 (!) and redid in white for her baby girl. You can’t even buy half a cradle for $20, and even if you could, the quality wouldn’t be anything close to this solid wood piece of furniture. 
 It just needed a coat of paint, and now it’s better than new. She even made the bedding herself! She says, “The mattress however, I did go buy a new one and recover it, I couldn’t bear the thought of using the old one!” So cute! See more on her blog HERE.

    That looks exactly like the cradle we have! It was my cradle when I was an infant, and we’ve used it for both of our sons. Ours is in great condition; it’s sad to see how abused the one in the pics was – but she turned into something absolutely lovely! Love it!

    Thanks for the blog – I am doing my best to build some artistic/decorating skills into my artistically-challenged mind.

    Wow — sometimes you can certainly get lucky and this turned out beautiful.

    You know — I was wondering..I’ve been following you for quite some time now and don’t see where you are following me in return, at least I don’t recall you following me or seeing any of your comments. Have you seen my blog? I would really be honored if you would take a look at my blog, and if you like any of what you see, I would sure be honored if you would follow me in return. Thank you, and look forward to your many upcoming projects!
