Over at Notes From A Very Red Kitchen, Katie has been hard at work transforming a crib that was literally found in the trash into a play room staple. This is a great project to transform something so frequently found at thrift stores and garage sales into something completely different and 100% useful.

Katie shares several great tips concerning this project, including how to prep the surface to take primer and paint — would you believe there isn't any sanding involved? Check out the full tutorial over at Notes From A Very Red Kitchen.
