But I have been seeing some other ideas about how to salvage old cribs. I love this idea from Notes From a Very Red Kitchen:

Isn't this brilliant? Take the two sides and turn them into a chalkboard!!! I love it!!! Find the complete tutorial here. We can't do this with our crib because the headboard and footboard have open slats. Still, it's a great idea.
I also saw in a magazine recently how someone had taken the sides of the crib with the slats and leaned them against the wall in the bathroom to create a towel rack. If I can find the photo, I will post it.
Another idea I had was to take a side of the crib into the garden to use it as a trellis.
Do you have any ideas about how to repurpose a drop-side crib?
