Repurposed Crib Ideas
We recently got rid of our baby crib. It was honestly such an emotional mommy moment! I didn’t realize how hard it would hit me that we were taking down our crib for the last time, that we would never again need it, and that my sweet babies were now to big for it.
We gave it to a sweet young couple that needed it, but if you don’t have someone that will put it to good use, these cool upcycle ideas are great. I love that this is a way to keep a part of that special piece of furniture in your home for years to come.
