Repurposed Crib Dog Crate

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)
Time for some paint. The tutorial is detailed with step by step do's and don'ts. You can see the entire post here:

    I am totally inspired. Checked the Goodwill and found no baby beds. Now I will check Craigs List. I am going to put my ceiling fan blades on hold. I have been looking everywhere for a furniture dog cage and they are way overpriced. The baby bed is a genius idea. Thank you so much.
