      Years ago when my babies were done with crib & grew up….I made a settee. It came out so cute, wish I had pics. It’s quite easy to do & a great conversation piece

    How far apart did you make the holes? Did you use a drill to make the tuft holes?

    Great furniture flips! Very inspiring. I have made three Lego tables for friends children- it was a big hit. The smaller table is good for beginners but I usually use an old coffee table, often with shelf underneath. You can shorten the legs if necessary.

    The French country looking sideboard and the crib are very well done. I don’t have alot of free time but when I make over a piece,I feel like we’re giving a ‘ nod’ to the families who scrimped and saved to buy that furniture in the first place. They would be proud to see their pieces with new life breathed into them.
