Reusing Cribs and Baby Gates as
Garden Trellises

We've seen some clever repurposing of old cribs and baby gates in the home and bringing them outside makes perfect sense. The framework of both crib slats and gates is very similar to garden trellises that you can buy, so why not use what you have instead.

Above are just five examples I found online of baby gear reuse in the garden and there are plenty more. Have you tried this?
