My babies are growing up quickly and this time I am not referring to my feathered ladies. I can't believe my Little Chicken Tender and Bitty Bantam will be in Kindergarten and Preschool next year. Where did the time go? Now, the only thing I have left from their baby days are memories and one recalled drop-side crib.
Currently, the crib has been converted into a toddler bed for the Bitty Bantam, which means we just took off the dangerous front drop-side railing. Once we are entirely through with the crib/toddler bed we can't donate it or give it to anyone which means the crib is destined for the landfill. The idea of it sitting in a landfill did not sit well with me so I became determined to figure out a way to repurpose it. While working outside and chicken proofing fences I got the idea to repurpose the railing into something for the garden.
|Before: The Drop-Side Crib Railing|
Viola! An Herb Garden Ladder!
|After: An Herb Garden Trellis|
I am very pleased with the results and have already started to brainstorm what I am going to do with the rest of the crib/toddler bed once Bitty Bantam outgrows it. Maybe another trellis, a storage for crafts or possibly a garden bench. I can definitely wait on those repurposing projects though because I don't want to rush her growing up. Time has already gone by too quickly.
Thanks for reading!
