Small Crib Gets Upcycled into a Shelf Unit

An old crib, obsolete for safety reasons, was found with garage sale tag for $10. The delicate spindles were too beautiful and simple to pass up. With the help of red cabinet doors from a garbage pile, this small crib transformed into a shelf unit. The spindles turned out to be the perfect length to serve as a magazine rack.

When it was fully assembled, I could not escape the fact that this Frankenstein piece looked like a chicken coop. Haunted by the chicken coop semblance, I wanted to choose a paint color that walked away from a barn look, but embraced the rustic feel of the piece. So I chose a neutral, accented by an earthy green.
