This old crib was starting to fall apart, and since the baby, who’s just over a year, never actually slept in it anyways (why sleep in a crib when you can sleep between mom and dad everynight😜) … We decided to take it apart. 

Seeing it in pieces made my mind race with creative possibilities. 

I started by pulling off the spindles. 

I marked each spindle in the spot where I planned to cut, counting out the bumps between so that I’d have 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1…

I used a small hand saw to cut the spindles. 

I sanded the rough ends and a little in each spot where I was planning to add a number. 

I stuck the stickers on and added a few layers of mod Podge over top. 

I added buttons for counting and a burlap bag doubles as storage and a work mat. 

There are so many ways to use this activity. How would you use it? 

Thanks for reading and sharing my posts 💕
