From Crib to Toddler Bed

After moving into our home over a year ago, we apparently lost the attachment that turns the crib into a toddler bed. She was already climbing out of her crib even after dropping the mattress to the floor. After taking down the former crib front, I was able to reuse the top piece for the side rail. No screws are poking through, the bed is stable, and my daughter's leg cannot get caught between the rail and mattress. The best part, she loves it. Now for ideas to repurpose the old crib front.
After picture. We have plans to add a no-sew tu-tu bed skirting, paint on the walls, and other pretty stuff.
