We no longer have use for a crib in our home. Sniff, sniff….I love babies. The crib that we were using was actually the one that my parents bought for me about 40-something years ago. Yes, I know that 40-something year old cribs have slats that are too wide and drop down sides, but not one baby that slept in that crib had a problem.
What To Do with An Old Crib
Anyway, being the sensitive, nostalgic soul that I am, I just couldn’t get rid of my very first bed.
Can’t you just picture a cute little Baby Laura B sleeping in this crib?
I had already taken off the one side before I grabbed my camera.
The mattress needed to be disposed of, but not before I wrote the names of all the sweet babies that lay their little heads on it.
I know…there is something wrong with me.
Cork Board Message Center
Idea #1 to repurpose an old crib is a cork board message center. I took one side of the crib and sawed the legs off.
A little sanding, couple coats of spray paint, cork and some fabric was all it took to repurpose a crib into our family’s message center. I think it came out so cute!
