(Inside: Recycling a toddler’s bed headboard and turning it into art. See what this creative mom did to recycle a toddler’s bed headboard. )
Sometimes, you just have to pull out your craftiness – or just hang out with crafty people and let yourself FEEL crafty just because you were in their presence.
I do that often with this friend.
She’s always making cool things, and after I’ve spent a few hours with her and seen all of her art, I feel like I’ve been creative too.
Specifically, look at how she made an old toddler’s bed headboard into art.
She found it at the end of someone’s driveway marked, “free.” It was already painted dark brown, so all she did was stencil it with white paint and lean it up against her house. It adds so much character to her front porch. (You could also use the side of your crib.)
Brilliant, momma – which surprises me NOT AT ALL.
Because this is what moms do: create beautiful things.
