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.
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!
