Repurposing Old Crib Mattress

Have the babies outgrown their crib mattress? Are they set on sleeping in their transition beds? Don’t throw the crib mattress away just yet. If there’s no one next in line to use it, keep the crib mattress and start on a new project of repurposing this. Now that spring is almost here, a nice swing in the backyard will keep kids busy relishing in the outdoors, and their old crib mattress would be perfect to use for this.

Here’s an idea to get you started:


You can have the slats customized, if you’re not adept with carpentry. Or better yet, seek the help of a professional with this project, so that the swing set comes out perfectly safe and secure.

Lastly, you don’t also have to buy new lumber, because just like the crib, you can use old wood slats to make the spring’s frame. Just make sure that these slats are still in great condition to avoid accidents with kids sitting on their new swing set.

In the afternoons, as swing set like this would be so nice to hang around in. If you don’t have ¬†backyard, this would still be good to install in a patio or a corner area in the room.
