hahaha! little girls saying a crib is for babies! a creative mother is the very best mother. and idea for getting rid of that scary metal canopy (which is just screaming about eating little girls and their beautiful hair) would be to get rid of it entirely, and replace it with perhaps the other side of the crib? or perhaps just us fabric.

how important is the spring thingie-ma-bobbie to keep the structure together? could you introduce a new piece of wood or two to firm it up?

do you have pictures of what it used to look like?

I could use the other side of the crib, but that would involve getting bracketing hardware and stuff.  I need the top for storage, because our house, and her room in particular, is extremely small.  I think that fabric is going to be the way to go for a while.  I'm not super worried, but yanno, just in case.  Wink

You absolutely do need something up there to brace the other 3 sides.  I suppose if  you had extra lumber lying around you could build something for support.  I was just happy that I found a fairly safe and sturdy solution that only involved moving 4 screws.  Smiley

Props to you, Super Momma! My son just graduated to a toddler bed that cost 100 bucks and still doesnt like it.  Isn't that the way it goes? Wish we had thought of this before spending so much money! We could have told him it was a cave or something and he would have loved it.
