Today I'm going to show you how I turned a repurposed crib into a plate rack. I took apart some cribs and parted them out. After I took them apart I had a couple of the end pieces I swapped out. I turned them this way, and that way, almost standing on my head. I asked people who stopped by... "what does this look like" while holding up the pieces. No one was any help. Then one day it finally came to me what this crib part wanted to be! Here's the story:
I swapped them out, making two identical pieces.

Hello Gail! I just had to link this to my plate racks post today - you rock girl!
Wow you are so imaginative! Thanks for all the inspiration!
You are my idol!!
Love how you repurposed something. Hubby and I are working on making a plate rack from a vintage change table.

Oh so Clever!
Amazing! I am so doing that! I have been needing a plate rack! I have some old baby bed parts in storage that have been waiting to be used! Thank you!

I love how this turned out. I just posted something last week about plate racks, because I am dying to make one myself. Don't tempt me to take apart my sons crib! 🙂 lol!
I've finally decided that you can make anything. So can I put in my order for a four pin rolling pin rack? LOL
I love that plate rack. I'd have never known it was made from a crib. I swear you're amazing at repurposing items.
Very interesting idea... I'm sending this to my daughter.. her 3rd boy is graduating to a 'big boy bed' soon and I thought she might use the bars, standing on end, as book racks for her homeschool class room... somehow she can use your idea for this??
Wow, that turned out beautiful!! And I love that you can see the wall color through the back -- makes the plates pop!
