When I had my daughter Londyn three years ago, we bought a new, simple black crib. I looks similar to the one pictured below.
I had a vision of updating our crib style, but as always I needed my hubby to talk through it with me and fill in the blanks with how to execute “the vision.”
I am inspired by tufting. I think it’s great, and I have NEVER seen a tufted crib before. I was enthralled by the idea of creating a tufted crib. I’m super lucky to have the husband that I do because he is soooo handy. He can always tell me right off the bat if my idea could ever work.
Do you know what tufting is? I’ll show you some example pictures.
All three of these headboards are tufted. Tufting is when you pull buttons through your upholstery to create a dimpled look in your style.
I wanted a TUFTED CRIB!!! But, as always, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. So, the idea has been brewing on my brain for a few months.
We finished the crib over the weekend, and I could not wait to show it!
I will be posting instructions soon! The nursery is coming together. I am excited to show you more.

UPDATE: The fabric I used is white pleather/vinyl…easy to wipe up.
