Transform from Baby Crib to Table in 3 Easy Steps

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.

3. Decorate!

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?

  1. I saw your instagram post awhile back and it just so happened that my family and I had decided we were going to give the crib away. Luckily I saw your post and now I plan on doing this when we move to our new house (instead of throwing it away). Thank you! I’ll tag you once I’m done with it! ^^

  2. I saw this in one article and I thought it was a brilliant idea. I love how you set it up with the Solar System jigsaw puzzle and how you used the guard rail as a book rack. Good job, mommy!
