I'm always so impressed to see the things my readers come up with! Take, for instance, this old baby crib that Gwen spotted on the curb while she was jogging. She details the rescue at You Can Call Me Gwen.
I've featured quite a few projects here at Roadkill Rescue that involve cribs being turned into benches. This one by Sara of Thrifty Treasures, however, takes this concept to a whole new level. She transformed crib parts into a settee with some serious style credentials.
"On one of our pickin’ trips we garbage picked two sides of a crib," tells Karen at The Salvaged Boutique. She thinks that at one time, the crib must have looked a lot like the crib pictured below, but at the time she found it, everything but those two sides were too broken to be salvaged.
There's no need for seasonal decor to be costly. Cristina proves this with the stunning Halloween mantel she created using several repurposed objects at Remodelando la Casa. The thing that really got her creative juices flowing was this stash of crib parts that she had in her garage.
When Rachel of Maison de Pax learned that after two boys, baby #3 would be a girl, she decided to go with all-out frills in baby girl's nursery. Opting for a Jenny Lind style of crib, she passed the crib along to her sister, who is welcoming another baby girl into the world.
Gail from My Repurposed Life was working on another project when she happily came up with this one along the way. She had some old crib spindles, and discovered that when she used the existing lines in the spindles as cutting guides, one of the things she could make were these perfect little wooden circles.
The little shelf sitting next to Sherry's back door just wasn't any fun to look at, she tells us over at Upcycle Addict. After living with it for a while, she decided it was time to build something that would function as both storage and a place to sit down in the mudroom. Instead of purchasing new materials, Sherry decided to use what she had on hand, and this old crib was a good starting point.
Over at Picked & Painted, Helen welcomed her second baby on July 3rd. Congratulations, Helen and family! Part of the preparations for the new baby involved getting the nursery ready, which included a crib makeover.
At Redhead Can Decorate, the 1969 crib Julie and her siblings slept in as babies had been sitting in her attic, not meeting safety requirements for use, but waiting, dreaming of the day Julie would repurpose it into...wait for it...an American flag! And it gets better, because the transformation was fast and easy!
At Lipstick and Sawdust, Kristen says that this upcycling project began when she saw an older model baby bed sitting on the curb. She'd been looking for toddler bed for some time, and realized that curbside crib had a lot of potential.
