Raise your hand if you've ever been here. Glowing with the anticipation of a new baby, you pick out a crib you love. You set it up. It's perfect. And as an added bonus, someday it will convert into a toddler bed! Awesome! Fast forward 3 years to the actual toddler bed conversion, and the "added bonus" looks more like a hokey half a crib than something you'd want your kid sleeping in.
Maiz Connolly of The Brooding Hen (remember her awesome bookshelf with the chimney that puffs tissues?) found herself in the same position, but rather than resigning herself to using a converted bed that didn't quite work right or buying something altogether new, she took matters into her own hands and fixed it. The modified crib conversion she made for her son is not only functional, but it looks amazing! Check out The Brooding Hen for more details and pictures.
