Repurposing a Vintage Baby Crib

When H and I saw this vintage crib at a yard sale a few weeks ago,  we both thought the wood work was so pretty that we decided to buy it ....knowing that it would be hard to find a place to put it.

When it is open,  it takes up a whole lot of room!

If you fold it in half ....not so much room.....

It will stand alone if it is folded about 3/4 of the way......

By adding a small shelf in the middle,  it can be used as a sofa table or entry way piece.     

I covered the small shelf with a piece of fabric and set two of my week end finds on top.    I was in HL late Saturday evening and they were marking down all of the 66% off isle down to 80% off.

I was able to pick up several pieces at a great savings.....

I will show you some of the other 80% off things I bought in another post......

I love to be able to give pieces a new life by repurposing them!
