We’re excited to bring you another great article from LilSugar, a fantastic source for mamas who want advice and news about everything from packing healthy lunches to mastering the art of stroller chic. This week, we’re featuring their tips on repurposing your crib.
You’re ready to retire your crib for good, but what to do with that once-so-important piece of furniture? Don’t just put stash it in the basement — repurpose it! Yes, you’ll have to be a bit crafty to pull these awesome ideas off (I’d consider hiring someone to help with a few of them), but the result is totally worth it. Not only can you feel great about a new, totally customized piece of furniture, you can also pat yourself on the back for being eco-friendly!
Add a glass top, turn one side rail into a shelf, and you’re set. Wow, right?
