I am very sorry, I got into hibernation *sad*. A wonderful family vacation at Jaipur & consequent sick babies kept me away from my weekly blogging.
It has been a while, since the baby crib is lying at one corner of babies room. The baby had grown too imp to sleep or sit still in her crib & was using the crib edges as Gymnastic bar *sigh*. We were so scared that we immediately transferred her to big bed & moved the crib to one corner of their room. The brother had been asking for a nice sofa/ bench to sit & read his books. But space constrained,we city apartment dwellers are *sigh*. We were thinking of moving the crib to make space for bench/ small sofa for babies.
We tried to sell the crib through Second to None. After waiting for few days I and the big brother were getting restless.One morning, I decided that if I cannot sell this stuff to clear this space, we will up-cycle the current crib to make a sofa for babies reading nook!! It started with cutting out a portion crib & followed by coat of fresh green painting, putting together our assorted unused cushions in the house (you can see mismatched cushions in the picture *smiles*) & our babies' sofa was ready! It goes well with their library. The babies & I love to settle down with a good book here!
Here are the glimpse of their room & reading corner with the new crib-turned-sofa!
