Check out these Cribs

Have you ever come across something in a design magazine or in a shelter blog or on Pinterest and just thought to yourself, “well, duh – that’s just too perfect for words”.  That’s EXACTLY how I feel about what I have to share with you all today.

Perhaps it is because I am still deep in the ‘trenches’ of baby hood with my youngest child, but it never even dawned on me that the crib mattress could ever be repurposed into anything once it was done being used in its original function.

And then I saw this:

 

Someone (I’m not sure who because after an exhaustive, 3 hour search down many a rabbit hole on the internet the only source I could find was here) took a crib mattress, mounted it on some wood shelving units and styled the heck out of it and I am smitten.  SMITTEN I tell you!

So, of course, I had to find some other inspiration to share with you!

Fab Rehab Creations saw the same inspiration (above) and created this lovely daybed for her sons:

And another similar transformation can be found over at HGTV, submitted by the incomparable Ana White:

In fact, once I got started, it was hard to STOP finding great crib turned daybed ideas.  I particularly like these next two because they actually use the rails of the cribs as well:

And I found this amazing outdoor seating option that uses an old pallet with a crib mattress over at Lottas Himmelrom

Well – it turns out it isn’t just the crib mattress you can repurpose.  Check out these lovely inspiration boards created from crib springs!  Seriously!!  People are so inventive…I just LOVE it!

Have you ever repurposed a crib mattress or frame?
