By September, Avery had become highly skilled at jumping out of her crib, so Ez decided to take the rail off the front and convert it into a toddler bed. It took her 5 seconds to learn she could crawl out of her bed and into ours...every night for the next 2 months. So, we decided it was time for an upgrade. I found this antique twin bed on craigslist, and thought it would be perfect in a creamy off-white. I also thought it would be a great idea to spray the bed for a store bought finish...what a nightmare. Ten coats of latex, oil primer and paint later Ez finally conquered the annoying yellow-brown tannins that kept bleeding through every layer. Ez finally finished it and Avery loves it! Here is the before and after of her new Big Girl Bed.
