Since we found out we were pregnant (maybe even before), we knew we wanted to build our baby’s crib. Of course we I had my doubts. Would it be safe enough? What would we finish it with that would be safe for baby? Would it even look good? Psh… c’mon – I knew the answer to that last one.

I started by searching different styles of cribs on Pinterest and even DIY cribs to see if I could get any tips from other DIYers. I came across Back to Domestic’s DIY Cribs and loved the style. This style of crib looked like it could be built using the same general technique we used for our DIY Pottery Barn Farmhouse Bed, which gave me the confidence I needed to move forward.

Happy New Year, and what a year it will be! 2014 was a great year for us and it’s hard to believe 2015 will be even better! As we’ve been waiting on the arrival of our baby boy, we’ve been working hard on projects for the nursery. With frequent trips out of town on the weekends, time at home is sparse and the projects are taking longer than we like.

For Thanksgiving, we traveled to Georgia to spend time with my family. The weather was good for the most part, but I was thrilled when a rainy day turned into a project day in my dad’s workshop. Being the tool nerd that he is, my dad has a nicely stocked workshop, which is something I could get used to.
