My sister Tara left this crib in my garage. And everyone knows, you can't leave stuff in my garage or it'll get confiscated. (Also Tara, sorry about your polka dot duvet cover. It may or may not have become a valance in Paysens room. It's not my fault really. It must be moms somehow. Bad genes or something.) I set out for the good ol home depot where I got numerous comments about how brave I am for venturing into the world of commerce with 4 children. But I sure was glad when I discovered the cull bin was full of wood cut to the exact length that I needed. Happy as a clam, I frolicked to the front to pay. It was then that I made an earth moving discovery... THEY SELL CHACO TACOS AT HOME DEPOT!!!! But due to the diet that WE (tara and I) vowed to go on together, I just bowed my head, said a humble goodbye, and went on my way. It sure made me feel better about swiping the crib. I made a frame for the crib mattress to sit on. I was going to use the side rail I didn't need but thought it might not hold up with my kids using every piece of furniture in my house as their personal trampolines. And here it is finished. I cut up a twin sized bed skirt as the skirt for this. The frame butts up against the cribs ends so I used Velcro to attach it. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. I pulled a "tara" and used my phone to take them because I can't find my camera.
