Back when I started this site, it was all about turning something old into something new — remodeling by recycling, essentially. Repurposing, back before the word “upcycle” was even a thing! 🙂 We do manage to reuse a good amount of what we can, whether it’s reusing part of what we’re tearing out (like in our stair remodel) or turning a thrift store card table into a console table (and we gave the same end game to an old kitchen cabinet, too) or combining a mish-mash of old and new furniture to make a built-in closet.
So the moral of the story is — I love a good repurposing project, seeing something old become something new, and the sweet Lydia is back again from Germany to show you how she made this cute couch from an upcycled crib (actually, 3 old cribs):
If you’re looking for more ideas to use those unsafe/outdated cribs, try one of these projects:
and you can check out even more crib ideas here at My Repurposed Life.
So now that we’ve ruined you from ever leaving an old crib sitting abandoned in a dumpster… here’s Lydia — who you’ll remember from her beautiful tiny kitchen redo!

at first I want to thank Lorene and Cassity from Remodelaholic for featuring my post!
As I opened the mail Lorene send me, I was so excited and happy to read her request!
This is amazing!
and I write about my projects and art.

Thank you for being our guest again, Lydia! What a great upcycle!
