I love this repurposed crib table! All the details below:
Remember the cribs I took apart?
I cut down the legs.
I made a box.
I cut a board to attach the legs. I screwed and glued the legs to this board.
Once the legs were attached to the board, I then glued and screwed this board to the bottom of the table top.
I used the “L” brackets from the crib to attach the table top to the box.
I tried making some leg braces… they didn’t work so well. It was time to call it a day and start fresh the next day.
I guess I got so busy with the new version of the leg braces that I didn’t stop to take pictures. The back brace runs along the outside of the legs. The side braces run along the inside of the legs. I used scraps left over from my media center. The shelves are just random scraps. I used my nail gun to fasten the shelves to the leg braces.
I painted it the same aqua/turquoise I used on this window cabinet.
It was a little bright, so I used some brown “oops” to glaze it.
Because I used the crib legs on this table, they still have that little hole in the bottom, so this could be used as a kitchen island with wheels on it.
Monday was a gorgeous day, sunny but cool. I worked on a couple of projects. I still have one more project from the table this top came from. Check out the Console Table
