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.
