One of my fellow venders at Big Flea RI does repurposing of old pieces. I am going to make sure he checks this and the other ideas out. A little inspiration never hurts.

Uh huh, a quick search turns up all kinds of great uses. I was amazed, once again, at how creative people are.

Thanks so much for doing that, I was out first thing this morning and thought "how rude was that?" and came on to do a quick search to add that in.
Sorry about that.
I wish I were that clever!

Some people can think outside the box! Great idea. I bought two changing baby stations. One is beside my bed like a nightstand. The top shelf holds a lamp, kleenex box and other nondescript things. The other two shelves hold books that I read before turning out the light. My other one is at the foot of the stairs and holds magazines that I subscribe to and want to keep.

It's hard to buy a used crib bec of the liability of the side dropping and the baby falling out. so this is an excellent idea for use of a crib. But what is the MFD that she used to line the bottom with?? Is it simply plywood??

Back in the 70's when I was a teen, I turned our old wrought iron baby bed into a love seat. My dad installed braces so the frame was stable with only 3 sides, then I painted it white. I made 2 "mattresses" with layers of quilt batting, one for the bottom and one for the back and then made some throw pillows for it. I stitched ties on both so they would slide around. I used it -for years- when I first moved away from home.

In this case, MDF is Medium-Density Fiberboard. It is NOT plywood. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medium-density_fibreboard

Checking out MFD it certainly seems to be your typical plywood. Medium density fiberboard...
