Our crib has been gathering dust for the longest time already. I’m not ready to pack it away just yet but I really hate the way it’s eating up space and having no use.
So one crazy Saturday, I got the idea to transform it to something more useful – a study table! It’s actually super simple to do but I spent the whole morning because I forgot where I put the screws to bring the platform up! You know, the higher setting we use when the baby is still really young and cannot turn around or crawl yet. 🙂 Aww, those days….!
Anyway, when I finally found them, this was what happened.
1. Remove the guard rail and set the crib to its higher setting.
2. Lay a sturdy board or wood onto it.
I used a 32×40 cintra (foam) board for this. It was a bit too wide so I had to cut some off. I got the board from Office Warehouse at P270.
It was not long enough though so I had to measure and cut another smaller piece to fit into it. The foam board comes in plain colors (white or black) but you can get a roll of wall sticker in hardware stores to stick to the board to add a design to your table. That’s the case with the bigger board.
Here are the details that I added to the table. (CW from L) Toy truck repurposed to hold marker pens. Letter cardboard of K for their names. Crayons holder made of LEGO blocks. Colorful bucket as a trash bin.
And of course, the completed jigsaw puzzle of the Solar System. I actually was just looking for a place to put this, which brought about the idea of having a table. I did a very crude way of framing the puzzle by just sticking it onto a cardboard and wrapping it with plastic cover. Ayyyyy! Anyone knows where can I get affordable frames?
Ta-da!!! Here it is!
Here’s another view.
Wondering where the guard rail went? Here! As a book rack!
Needless to say, the boys loooooove their table. So do I! Watcha think? 🙂
