10 Creative Ways To Repurpose And Upcycle Used Baby Furnitures

10 Creative Ways To Repurpose And Upcycle Used Baby Furnitures

For most of those who have the chance to become parents (or grandparents, or siblings, or aunts, or uncles, etc.), to have a child is a reason to rejoice and celebrate. To be permitted to indulge that little person with toys, and even sometimes yourself with matching outfits, is probably one of the most enjoyable experiences a person can live through… but the harsh reality is that kids will eventually grow old.

The pretty clothes will no longer fit and the once-loved toys will one day no longer be used. Luckily, those easy to carry items can get to be donated or given away into the hands of younger generations; but what do we do with the things we can’t really put back into boxes? Sometimes we just throw them away, and sometimes we even get to sell those things.

Other times however, why not give that dearing object another chance to stay within the household and give the family more joy, entertainment and serviceability for a little longer? If you happen to be blessed with the DIY skill (or know someone who does) check out this ideas and keep that lovely crib around for a few more years.

1.  A cozy reading nook, for the parent who aims to pass on the love for books

    Ask your kid to choose the fabric you’re gonna be using for the seat or take them with you when you buy the supplies so they can voice their opinions and get involved in the process of creating their very own “boy-cave” or “little-lady-shed”.

    2. A picnic wagon, to carry all those *needed* supplies all over the backyard

      3. A desk, because where else would your little scientist/artist/world traveler study?

        Mix-and-match some chairs, keep it simple (as seen above) or add some color if your child like stuff flashy. Add a few hooks or supplies and instead of a regular table as a base, add some chalkboard paint to multiply the entertainment possibilities.

        4. A rack to keep things organized

          5. Are you in need of a new couch, and the child’s crib is taking up some space? Nooooo problem!

            Livingroom? Guesthouse? Master bedroom? It will belong whereever you place it!

            6. A jewerly organizer… because let’s be honest, all girls need at least a small one.

                Maybe your kids aren’t into veggies that much right now, but if you get to teach them a bit about gardening from a young age on, they might be curious enough to figure out if ‘love makes everything better’ also included the taste of celery.

                8. A vintage porch seat, made with that crib you inherited from a Southerner aunt.

                  You might even include some armrest or hang it from the tree in the backyard. From seat to swing, how cool is that?

                  9. And why not even a dog crate, for the new baby in the family and your child’s future best friend. A comfy pillow/blanket is all this one needs!

                    10. Oh, wait. What was that? You don’t wanna get the crib out of the room? Is your child not grown enough for a big kids’ bed? Is it hard for your kid to say goodbye? I bet it is, but no worries! Turn it into a toddler bed and you won’t even need to worry about the child’s room decor – or at least not just yet.
