Right before Henry was born, I made a crib skirt from a flat sheet. This project was all about quick, easy and cheap. And it turned out pretty darn good. It’s also become a pretty popular post on the old blogerooski. Likely because it’s quick, easy and cheap.
And because I’m awesome, of course. Mostly that.
Now, Henry is nearly 8 months old and it was time to drop the crib. Because the boy is full-on mobile and also turning into McGyver. I knew it was only a matter of time before he scaled that crib and ended up in Argentina solving some sort of crime with a toothpick and a piece of scotch tape.
So, I thought I’d share how the skirt is holding up after 8 months use and how it worked to drop the crib. Here is what it the setup looked like in May. If you remember, the beauty of this type of crib skirt is that it’s adjustable. It works at all crib heights. It is also made of three uber-simple-to-put-together panels. (Learn more in the original post.)
And here’s the skirt after dropping the mattress frame by one “peg.” The ribbons on the short sides aren’t perfect because the one that overlaps with the front panel doesn’t have anywhere to attach. But this makes absolutely no difference and the skirt still lies beautifully.
(You can ignore the dust and the random staple on the floor. I clearly do.)
And because I know you will ask – the sign is from my amazingly talented friend Jen at Onion Grove Mercantile. I think you should order one of your own because it’s the best sign ever.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a full update of Henry’s nursery, current photos and how things have changed in 8 months.
