Every wonder what in the world you to do when you lower your crib mattress to the lowest level and you find that your crib skirt that you paid a fortune for is now way too long. Here's a very cute solution. Tulle. Here, I used two spools of tulle that I bought at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each. Added some black and white polka dot ribbon, also found 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and simple tied it to the metal bars of the crib. Since I'm a super over protective mother, I have also never used the bumper that I also paid a fortune for, so I added cute accent pillows in the back of the crib that you can remove at night for safety. So instead of paying another however much for new bedding, I simply converted to this oh so cheap version for less than $100. I actually love this more than the original bedding I paid much, much more than $100 for.
Please ignore the non matching rocking chair. It's a family heirloom that I can't bring myself to ask if I can refinish.
Can't resist showing an up close pic of this. This was also done with all 1/2 Hobby Lobby items. Metal accent, coordinating ribbon, and added matching tulle that I used for the skirt of the crib.
