There are built-in shelves along one side of the nursery, and I’ve been thinking about what to use them for. They’re shallow and spaced fairly close together so I need something small.
I was thinking about using lots and lots of vintage wooden blocks. I figured they’re easy to come by and several sets jumbled together would look really sweet in a kid’s room. I’d like to just buy a bunch from garage sales, Craigslist, and eBay, but should I be worried about lead paint or other problems?
Generations of kids have stuck wooden blocks in their mouths and we all seemed to turn out OK, right? Or should I just stick with brand new blocks to be safe?
