This week I am sharing something atypical, while I typically focus on WFH opportunities and resources, I love Arts & Crafts! Occasionally, I will share DIY projects that you all can work on during your spare time or with your NKs (or your own) during their school breaks. With Spring Break less than two weeks away for most kids, I figured this would be a perfect opportunity to take on a fun spring project.

As your nanny kids (or your own!) grow up a crib may no longer be useful, but as we tend to get emotionally attached to such items, it can be hard to get rid of it as well. Luckily, there’s no need to throw it away as there are so many fun ways to re-purpose an old crib and make something useful with it.

You can use parts from your crib such as the springs to make gorgeous decor or even a drying rack. Surprisingly, old cribs can be used for larger DIY projects such as a desk, a bench, and even a headboard. Truthfully, these ideas only scratch the surface so check out all these new crib re-purpose ideas, and I’m sure you’ll find something to do with yours! Please Pin this post to refer to later!
