Repurposed Baby Crib Turned Chalkboards

Hey everybody!  Got a couple of new creations from GadgetSponge Garage.

I found the vintage crib used in these two projects for a heck of a deal and knew immediately what they were perfect for ---- CHALKBOARDS!!!  I cut the legs off and took the hardware off and got to painting the chalkboard paint onto the center areas.

The abacus-style play balls at top are so cool.  I attached some vintage, wooden bowling pins along the sides to hang different items from.

Yes, that's a link basket from a dryer.  This is from my grandmother's dryer.  It's about as old as I am.  It was a sad day for her to see her clothes dryer go away that she had for so long.  And me being the opportunist -- I had to cannibalize the dryer before it got hauled away.  So I grabbed the lint basket, some badging, knobs and a few other pieces.

I wanted to illuminate this one so I dug through the garage and found an old battery-top camp lantern assembly.  I gutted the bulb lantern and installed a new bulb housing and reassembled it with some minor mods.

The cord goes neatly through the back and out of the way.  Check out the vintage yardsticks!  You know I've got to use some whenver possible.

Some vintage garden faucet handles, wooden blocks and a brass deep tray or some sort round things out!

 BUY THEM NOW!  In my ETSY SHOP (HERE).  Or at Timeline Antiques & Collectibles Mall in Shreveport, LA.

What a darling reuse for an old crib, and all the miscellaneous other parts as well! Thanks for sharing it at the VIP party @ Knick of Time! I'll be giving your project a shout-out on my FB page here - https://www.facebook.com/KnickofTime
