Cool Crafts: Crib Facelift

First off, I just had to include this picture with this post. Katie had found this stuffed dog that my grandparents gave me when I was pregnant and was trying to teach it how to turn the humidifier on. {LOVE}

OK - now for the real meat of the post :) There is this little toy crib that my mom got when she was roughly 5 years old - and then I played with it when I was little - and now it is Katie's. I felt it needed a facelift though, which wouldn't be difficult. Here is the before picture:
So off to Michael's I went to buy some cans of white spray paint - I was set! After about 3 or 4 coats and then some painting of the little toys on the crib, it was finished! I have been meaning to do this project since last Fall - I don't know why I kept putting it off! It was simple! And I love how it turned out. Here is the after picture:

Katie has so many stuffed animals - I thought this would be the perfect place to store them!

I wonder what I can get into next - bring on the projects!!


  1. That looks great! How do they acquire so many stuffed animals? I've already gone through to rid out Chloe Jo's a few times and she still has a ton!

    The link-ups do help with getting more followers. I think the WILW link-up is why I've gotten so many lately. The tutorials and recipes might have had something to do with it, too. I also try to comment on several blogs when I look through the link-up list. The only link-up I've found that I really like is the WILW, but there are so many! I've seen link-ups for every day of the week except for Saturday and I'm sure there is one out there somewhere. Anyway, those are some things that I do that have helped me acquire new followers.

  2. I love the facelift. Spray paint is one of my favorite do -it-yourself- home accessories.
