Cara from Live the Home Life describes her process:
We started by painting the wood (what else?) black. Too add a softer touch, we crafted two upholstered panels and attached one to the center of each of the two pieces. I was unsure how this would play out, but I definitely think it was a good choice!
This is a fantastic solution for cribs that are just taking up space and won't be used again. Find her entire project at Life the Home Life.
