Don’t throw out that old crib! Turn it into an organizing rack for your sewing or crafting supplies.
Disassemble crib. If the crib has a plastic teething rail, pry it off gently by sliding a flathead screwdriver beneath it and popping it off.
Measure and mark where you’d like your nails to be. Consider which objects you’ll be hanging and make sure you leave enough space between the nails for them.
I decided to use mine primarily for thread storage, so I used my largest spools of thread to determine the spacing. *Note: I only measured for the first row. I just lined up the following rows with the nails in the first row.
Hammer the nails in place. Hammer them at an angle so the hanging objects won’t accidentally slide off. Note: if your crib has round dowels instead of flat slats, you may find it easier to pre-drill the holes and use screws instead of nails.
I hung on the wall with four drywall screws placed beneath the first and last rows to hang it on the wall.
What to do with the other long crib railing? Lean it on the wall for shoe storage! You could also hang scarves, neckties, or even towels in the bathroom.
