How to Upcycle a Small Crib into a Stylish, Highly Functional New Piece of Furniture

My favorite part about this project is that an existing piece, that couldn't be used in its existing form was transformed it into a practical, functional and surprisingly unique piece of furniture.

    Not only is this a great idea for a magazine rack but could also be painted with a waterproof paint and placed in the bathroom as a towel rack. Just remove a couple extra rods on top to allow breathing room.

    SOOO cool! I've made benches, toy boxes, and chests out of cribs. Never thought of a shelving unit. Great Job!
