I scored this vintage crib at an estate sale Saturday. I was excited about it because the rails along the sides are spaced very narrowly and the paint is lead free~no safety issues! Plus, it's just adorable. I might not even paint it. Just add some clear coat.
And then there's this. My husband went hunting a few weeks ago and brought it back for me. I'm not sure what I'll do with it.
Some people paint them.
I prefer them white. I thought I'd try bleaching it.(and if I had two of them, I'd mount them like that. But this particular elk wasn't considerate enough to shed both antlers on the same hill.)After reading up on that process, I changed my mind about that. No one really recommends it because bleach can ruin the antlers. So I'll probably leave mine au naturale. Maybe I'll use it as a centerpiece with some candles and pinecones for Christmas. After a good scrubbing. Thanks for reading!
