Turning the crib into a workspace for kids is a genius idea. I wish I knew the source for this but unfortunately I don't. A friend had found it on Pinterest a while back and sent it to me.
And while I found the desk image last year, I couldn't think of a good way to reuse the crib mattress but Ikea just did. Check out what they did in their monthly online magazine:
See the crib mattress? It's the headboard! Wrapped in fabric and propped behind the bed, it's a great solution for a queen size bed. So clever, creative and affordable. Versatile, too – whenever you want to update the look, just switch out the fabric for something fresh and new!
