This old crib had a neat story behind it, thought I would share. A friend brought this by a while back and they asked me if I could make this into a bench for them. It belonged to his mother and law, and the story behind it was touching. She had lost her son at an early age and had kept his crib in storage for years because she couldn’t find it in her to get rid of it. Her daughter wanted to do something with it and came up with the idea of making this into a hall bench for her. I was honored to take on the project and was pleased with the outcome. The bench now sits proudly in her mother’s house and hopefully brings back a good memory every time she sees it.
