Refurbished Bassinet



Beau worked so hard and quickly on this bassinet! He did 4 coats of ebony stain (of course, you had to have known it would be black!:) It had to match my bedroom..ha!) . Then he lacquered it really well.

He also added hooks on the side for a diaper bag or baby stuff, and he built new legs. The old ones were warped and to frilly for my liking.

New Added Hooks

The best part is that the stain lets you still see the natural wood underneath. It really turned out so beautifully! I am so glad he took over 'cause the few bursts of energy I get, I still leave unfinished projects! What would I do without him?

The best part of all of it is the price! I got the bassinet for $5.00 at my favorite place, that's right, the DI. And after stain, new legs, and hooks the total cost..... a whopping $13.00!!

I keep looking at it. I keep envisioning holding my sweet little boy in my arms, smelling his hair, and looking at his face! Watching him sleep peacefully. Oh I am so excited I can hardly stand it!


  1. Great job at repurposing it! I love it! I'm new to your blog. It's nice to meet you! Thanks for adding your creativity to the DIY Show & Tell party! :)

  8. What concerning the shade printing. You ask which is less costly in
    B&W but what about general usage. My inkjet smears every shade I attempt
    to print. Is laser much better for all around top quality at an affordable cost.
