Antique Baby Carriages

We recently saw some amazing vintage strollers floating around the internet, and it made us wonder: what about using these as decor in the nursery? We've seen old prams repurposed as planters before, but perhaps they might make stunning pieces in a child's room. Dottie over at Modern Kiddo posted last month about antique carriages, noting that they used one they received as a gift as a bassinette. While Dottie bemoans the fact that they didn't use it as a stroller much, perhaps that's exactly what we could do with these beautiful pieces of design. A basinette? Storage for stuffed animals? A rolling book cart?

We've featured a few beautiful oldies above. Can you picture them repurposed in the nursery? What might you use them for?

Give us some ideas in the comments!
