- tools (to dissemble the crib)
- spray paint
- 4, 2 1/2 screws
Take apart the crib. You’ll need only the headboard and footboard, not the sides. Spray-paint both pieces, and let dry.
Clamp both pieces together so they’re perfectly lined up next to each other. Use a drill to make two pilot holes near the bottom of each center leg, then screw them together with four 2 1/2-inch screws.
Lean your new headboard against the wall or, if you want it higher, screw it directly into the wall.
