Okay…confession time. Yes, I am the lady that drives around with my son during city spring cleanup and grabs all your junk, all the while wearing a skirt and a glorious smile on my face! I’m all about some repurposed baby crib fun!
You know you want to join me. tsk. If not, can I just say that you are missing out?!
Each year our city has an annual spring cleanup where you can set curbside up to a pickup truck load of unwanteds (some call it trash). This city-wide dejunking lasts for four weeks – one quadrant at a time. Let me tell you, by the end of the four weeks, I was exhausted and had a garage full of someone elses’ trash. Yipppeee!! (You should see my husband’s face when I roll in the driveway.)
Today, I’d to show you just a sample of what I came home with…baby cribs. Now you’re thinking…whaaaat??
At my first stop out on our first day out was this absolutely gorgeous pink baby crib. This old piece has such character with it’s original paint, time-worn love, and markings. I knew in a minute I wanted it to be a chalkboard sign for my one-day-brick-and-mortar shop. But for now it would be used as my garage sale sign.
The side rails also make a great garden trellis. I’ve used them to trellis my sugar snap peas, pole beans, cucumbers…for any climbing plant, really. I have more rails in my shop and will be putting them to use soon. I can’t wait to show you!
