When we were expecting, we were handed off a vintage crib. After we purchased Luna's vintage nursery set I felt it was just too much vintage in one room and picked up a simple more modern crib from Ikea. Turns out we're not crib parents! We co-sleep with Luna and we no longer have either crib in her room because whats the point? I sold the Ikea crib on Craigslist to a really sweet local grandpa + grandma for their visiting grandson and the vintage crib went into the basement to die.
As Luna got bigger, co-sleeping got cramped so we opted for a new cali-king sized floor bed in our bedroom. Our previous queen size went into Luna's room as a floorbed for naps, playtime, and the occasional guest. Since I'm still getting used to floorbeds I am constantly rearranging and restyling. I recently used the old crib ends to make a headboard for the queen floorbed. It was an easy afternoon project of cleaning, cutting off the legs (after stealing a saw from Travis' tool stash), spraying it white, and securing the two ends together.
