Cribs can be pretty costly, but we can often get extra use out of them when we have additional children or when we pass them on to a relative or a neighbor. But if no one wants to take your used baby crib, think twice before tossing it to the curb for the garbage man.
There are plenty of really cools ways to reuse a crib. You can transform it into an entirely different piece of furniture for little or no cost.
Here are some ideas to get your inspiration flowing:
1) Storage Table
This old crib was topped with a piece of glass and had the side rail turned into a shelf to create a unique storage table.
2) Hanging Swing
Something like would cost hundreds of dollars at the store but you could easily make one on your own buy finding some of these heavy duty chains and hooks. All they did was remove one side of the crib and toss some cushions on it.
3) Play Table
This table had one of the sides taken off and was given a coat of chalkboard paint. Now it’s an adorable play table where kids can do crafts.
