This is my finished vintage iron baby bed for the new screened in porch.
This is how it started out. A vintage baby bed I got at an Estate Sale. I used it for years when I did arts and crafts show. I filled it with pillows that I had made.
So, here is how I did it. Bella wanted to help out!
It all started with these two vintage tablecloths I had. I had purchased one at an Estate sale and got the other one on EBay. I loved the red roses. I made a cover for the springs and cut the tablecloth and made the skirt around the bottom on all sides.
I took a outdoor weatherproof cushion for a chaise lounge and wrapped it in heavy, puffy batting. I wanted it to be real puffy.
I then covered the cushion in outdoor red fabric. I took the center panel of the tablecloth and made the back pillow and added some red and black pillows to the cushion.
I love it!
I am making a vinyl cover that will just cover the entire baby bed and when the weather gets bad, I can take all of the cushions off of all of the furniture and put in the baby bed and they will be protected for the winter.
I am asking for prayers for this precious little baby - this is Kaycee. She is the smaller of the twin great granddaughters. She only weighed 2# when she was born. She has been in and out of the hospital with lung problems.
She is going in the hospital tomorrow for a CAT scan for a mass she has in her lung that is growing. Just pray that it will be something that can be taken care of easily for her and us.
I know that God will be with her and the doctors and we will handle the situation whatever it is.
Thank you in advance for your prayers.
