Pretty Settee from a Crib

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.

Cute Corner Bench from a Crib

"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.

Baby Crib Makeover

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.

Look What Came Out of the Crib

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. cutting-crib-spindles

Mudroom Bench Made from Reclaimed Objects

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.

Crib Mattress Spring Turned American Flag

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 American flag!  And it gets better, because the transformation was fast and easy! redhead can decorate before
