buckle up friends, looks like right now is the official start of baby related DIYs. sorry (not sorry).

chris and i spent weeks looking at cribs - we wanted something simple with a nice design but didn't want to pay a ton for it.

we found the perfect crib for us - the babyletto mercer 3-in-1 convertible crib. since we live in an apartment in nyc, the drawer underneath was a huge bonus for extra storage.  what we didn't realize was that you could see into the drawer without a crib skirt, which wasn't ideal.

no biggie, i DIY'd an easy drawer cover:

i bought one yard of faux white leather and some snaps from the fabric store. i used hard core glue to attach the bottom snaps to the wood, and sewed the top part of each snap to the corners of the leather, pulling tight so there was no lag.

cut off the extra leather and TA-DA, simple fast fix that's easy to get in and out of, while not compromising the design of the crib. BOOM
