Martha sent us an email: We're new parents-to-be and nervous about many things including crowding our antiques-filled 1 BR apt with brand-new things (we don't own one piece of new furniture).
I know we'll have to deal with it for certain key things (crib, tub, stroller, etc.), but would like to incorporate antiques/vintage as much as possible. We know about lead paint and other obvious hazards...
We collect arts and crafts, and LOVE this chair (shown above) but it's clearly not safe, right? I'm sure it has other issues, but obviously lacks a bar between the legs, could we add one or is this a crazy idea?
What do you think? Please share your suggestions and ideas with Martha...thanks!
