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.

              7. Or a herb garden. You know you want 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.

                        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                        8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                        We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                        On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                        Advertising

                        Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                        1. Smart Door Locks

                        A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                        2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                        Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                        3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                        If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                        4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

                        These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

                        5. Nest Thermostat

                        This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

                        6. Smart Lighting

                        Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

                        7. Google Chromecast Ultra

                        Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

                        8. Canary

                        This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
