If you have seen how Trios Petites Filles transformed a foot board into a settee then you know how amazing that was! I was so inspired I set out to find a foot board so I, too could make something similar. Hers is by far more glamorous, but I love how mine turned out as well.
I started with one side of a crib...
and 1 curved foot board. I cut the foot board in half, then decided it was just too deep so I took off a little bit more.
You can see here how deep it would have been. It probably wouldn't have been able to fit up my stairs!
Here it is with the sides trimmed and attached.
Here is what I have just by combining the crib back, foot board, and a board in the front.
I added fabric to the back.
I added some foam and batting to the front as well as an applique.
The foam was covered with fabric on the front. I created some slats to support the seat with some leftover wood from redoing our floors this past year.
The seat was covered with some fabric then I made a cushion with a large piece of foam. If you have the mattress for the crib, this would be a perfect use for it!
Here it is all finished after I added the trim.
This was a fun project.
