Babies grow, is natural law, and the cribs are small and in perfect condition. What to do with them once they have lost their functionality? We have always been passing them from one sibling to another or we have given them to a relative or acquaintance. But we can also do something else with them to keep them at home as a sweet memory and testimony of our children's most tender childhood. We can transform them and give them other uses as we show you below.
With a wooden cradle, with hardly any transformation, we can create a beautiful desk . We only need the board, in this case in glass because it gives more lightness to the whole.
The railings of bars are ideal to transform them into practical magazine holders . We will always have them there as a faithful memory and with a very practical use.
I love the use that this cradle has been given, like side table or waitress it is ideal. Practical, because it can be moved by carrying wheels and can carry all the service for a meal on the terrace.
The metal bed frame of an old crib has been used on this occasion as exhibitor to hang photos, notes or whatever we want. A good idea for our desk.
Sometimes it is not even necessary to remove the crib from the nursery, it can be transformed into a playful playground .
With the oldest cribs rescued from old family storage rooms we can create real furniture that will give a vintage touch to our decoration. In the photo above a solid iron crib has been transformed into a practical sofa for the porch . In the bottom photo and after a carpentry job an old wooden cradle has been transformed into two decorative chairs for the kitchen .
Another crib transformed into outdoor sofa , it is a practical idea and easy to carry out. Anyone can transform it with little work.
A couple of other ideas for the little ones to play and make use of their old cribs. From a Board to explore your creativity to an elegant storage system of his play and painting supplies.
