You're ready to retire your crib for good, but what to do with that once-so-important piece of furniture ? Don't just put stash it in the basement — repurpose it! Yes, you'll have to be a bit crafty to pull these awesome ideas off (I'd consider hiring someone to help with a few of them), but the result is totally worth it. Not only can you feel great about a new, totally customized piece of furniture, you can also pat yourself on the back for being eco-friendly!
Add a glass top, turn one side rail into a shelf, and you're set. Wow, right?
