Before & After: An Old Door Becomes a Toddler Bed

My Repurposed Life

Even a quick perusal around Gail's blog My Repurposed Life lets you know that she is a pretty fearless DIY'er. She's also pretty determined evidenced by the number of coats of paint she needed to get to this beautiful glossy red. The bedrails she used for the sides were already in her stash and she cut them down so note that you could just as easily make a twin bed.
