My son's upcycled crib.


I couldn't stand getting rid of my baby's crib after he no longer needed it. So I upcycled it!
The crib springs went to make a towel rack in the kids ocean themed bathroom. Looks like the ladder on a boat, don't you think?
The sides of the crib went to make magazine racks. This is before I painted them.
And I used the headboard and the foot board to make a comfy bench for my upcycled carpet display vanity!
The blanket drawer that went under the crib was turned into a car table for my son.

      @KK Thanks so much. It was so hard to let go of his crib and watch him grow up.

    Gosh, you used every thing. The towel rack could be around forever (metal). I have my baby crib too (68+ years old)! Your post is giving me ideas!
