Taking the sides from your crib you can now safely harbor other precious items from home. Hanging from your laundry room with chain at all four corners you have a stationary drying rack. This is a place for your bamboo and wire hangers to call home as they bear the weight of fresh-ironed uniforms. Secure vertically on your wall in your craft room with enough distance between wall and the spokes and you have a great place to hang baskets, or your inspirational magazine collection. Simple, and with a little paint you can easily adjust the color to match the rest of your décor.
Make sure the crib you choose is safe. The best way to do this is to look for a crib with JPMA certification. This will ensure that the crib meets the minimum safety requirements promulgated by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission), as well as voluntary safety standards issued by the American Society for Testing and Materials. These standards are stricter and safer than the mandatory CPSC baby crib safety standards.
Mount a stylish rod on the wall to hang clothes, or install a hook to hang a laundry bag or canvas bag full of toys. Pegboard is another great way to organize all sorts of baby necessities. You can also use the walls to store all those stuffed animals your little one will inevitably collect. Buy a net (or two!) to hang in the corner to keep your baby’s teddies and dolls cozy and contained.
For months, perhaps years, the rails of your standard one-sided drop crib had been used to keep your child inside, and away from harm. The crib wasn’t only their sleeping empire; it was their Crib, to use MTV terminology. It was their home. But now that no fuzzy wrapped baby is lying within it’s gated confines, you’ll be surprised how many versatile purposes the crib can have for your crib.
