Don't throw out those old cribs!

I can't really say this is mine, but it's a project I helped my friend make from her husband's baby crib from 60 years ago.  There was adorable artwork (circus themed) on each end of the crib that we hated to touch.  So we decided to use the rails for the sides of the chair.  One end of the crib is the back of the chair.  We were able to incorporate the other end into the seat, so no (circus) animals were harmed in the making of this project.  We even found ways to use other parts of the crib in the details of the chair.  Her husband was very happy with his "new" chair.
