My friend Mindi from My Love 2 Create shared this fabulous repurpose with my readers on My Repurposed Blog. Who knew you could make such a fabulous project from a FREE crib she found on Craig's List?

This isn't a beginner's project, but by following Mindi's directions a weekend warrior could easily pull this off with a little patience.

Yep, it all began with a free crib Mindi found on Craig's List. She's not only talented, but very frugal!

First up, she had to get the crib ends cut to size.

Kreg Jig pocket holes and right angle clamps help give that extra pair of hands. (if I lived closer to Mindi, she wouldn't need these clamps, and we would be able to build some awesome projects)

    I absolutely love this idea! I would love to make one for my dog. He has a crate, but it's not too comfy. This looks like an amazing solution! Thank you!

    OMGosh this is genius! My dogs love their kennels, but they are indoors. This would be a cute thing to have in the backyard for shade and quiet time.

      Since the crib is meant to be indoors I don't think that it would last well for outdoors. My husband made a wonderful Dog house for our Beautiful White Samoyed many years ago. We put an open door in the top of it with carpet and ventilation under

    This is one of the best and most original ideas for a crib remake I've seen yet!

    Your furbabies are obviously very much loved :) That sounds really great, I love that idea as well
