7 different ways to reuse a baby cot
Here are the seven fabulous ideas for creatively reusing an old baby cot. Whether its turning it into a shelf to store things, a toddler desk or even a bench! Pinterest and Google have some brilliant ideas. I have listed ideas that I really loved! Here are 7 different ways to reuse a baby cot!
Turn it into a toddler desk
Most baby cots can be adjusted to the right height. Just remove the side drop rail to convert it into the perfect writing desk for your toddler. All that you need to do is use a sturdy particle board or an aptly sized blackboard as the base and you have a toddler desk ready to use. Want to make it look fancy? Just add a few basket holders for them to store their things!
A Porch bench
We love how sleek this bench is. No one will be able to tell it was once a crib. Since most baby cots are pretty sturdy, you can use it as a bench too. I love the way this baby cot has been completely changed to look like a beautiful porch bench. A perfect example of trash to treasure.
A wall hanger
Yes! Pull out the base on which you place the mattress and hang it on the wall. You have a nifty wall hanger that you can use to adorn the wall. Ditto for a kitchen shelf. You can use it hang the pots and pans from your kitchen on this awesome wall hanger.
Make it a part of the nursery decor
I am in love with how beautifully this baby cot has been repurposed to blend in with the nursery decor. Even if your children have outgrown the crib or the baby cot, convert it into a settee that can be a corner piece in the nursery. Make some pillows or cushions with their baby clothes to make a wonderful heirloom piece.
Make a Magnet board/ Memo Board
You don’t necessarily need to use the whole cot. Just pull out that side rail and use it as a magnet board or a memo board. You can also use it as a picture board and clip loads of your family pics together. After all, you do need to create those memories!
A big doll house/ play house
A big doll house or maybe a den where they can unleash their imagination and play with the toys! The good part is that you can perhaps use the babycot as a whole. Isn’t this a fab way to repurpose your cot? Paint it in bright colours or use some colourful upholstery to make it more inviting.
A Storage Unit
If you are a crafts person or stack up on books, you will love this one! Fix the side panel as a shelf, add a glass top and voila! You have a really fabulous side table ready to use. You can use this as a cool shelf to stack your books or hold your craft material. Add those cartons to make your own independent storage units too.
