After moving into our home over a year ago, we apparently lost the attachment that turns the crib into a toddler bed. She was already climbing out of her crib even after dropping the mattress to the floor. After taking down the former crib front, I was able to reuse the top piece for the side rail. No screws are poking through, the bed is stable, and my daughter's leg cannot get caught between the rail and mattress. The best part, she loves it. Now for ideas to repurpose the old crib front.

We used the extra crib front as a baby gate for our son that climbed over the regular gates.
We just attached hinges on one side and a latch on the other side. (Of course we had to cut it to fit the doorway)
