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.
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.
