Turn An Old Crib Into A Work Bench

Turn An Old Crib Into A Work Bench

When your baby outgrows clothes and furniture, sometimes it's hard to find a way to repurpose it. There's always the option of giving it away to friends and family or donating it. The problem with that is — what if you decide to have another baby? Creative (and temporary) reuses are hard to come by and we're certainly glad we stumbled upon this crib turned work bench!

Caz from, A Little Learning For Two, created this fantastic work bench from an unused crib. The best part about it, is that she can easily turn it back into a crib should she find a use for it in that way again. The second best part of this project is that it cost her next to nothing.

First, the crib had a removable side door so she was able to easily remove it to start the project. She used thick sheets of MDF to secure the mattress base and painted it with fun chalkboard paint. Using stick on hooks from the local store, she created ample space to hang scissors, paper — you name it! An old spice rack was painted white and used for well — anything the kids want it to be used for.
