The Problem With Pinterest

Cora’s crib is sitting in the garage because I just can’t throw it away. I’m sure I can find a great way to recycle it on Pinterest.

Pinterest1 The Problem With Pinterest

Are you on Pinterest? If so follow me here? Need an invite? Let me know in the comments.

Don’t forget if you see something you “pin worthy” here on The Happy Housewife you can use the red “pin it” below.

    I’m on Pinterest and yes, I’ve seen some good crib recycling ideas. My favorites are making it in to head board or making it into a garden bench. You can follow this link to a post I did about my own Pinterest addiction and follow me back. Good luck!

    Now, I’m wishing I had an old desk gathering dust :)

    I just LOVE the childs desk Idea. I have actually been hunting for a decent crib at the thrift store or yard sales to make one.

  8. Tracy says:

    I would love an invite as well! I wanna see what all this buzz is about!
    Thanks!

  9. Beth Ann says:

    I would love an invite if you have any. When I requested from the main page, they said they would put me on a waiting list and send out an invite when they had some. Thanks! :)

  10. I could use an invite please and thank you:)

  11. Hilani says:

    I just posted on my wall about Pinterest, without having seen this. I can’t wait to follow. ;)

  12. Beth Ann says:

    Thanks, Toni! :)

  14. Erin B says:

    Invite me…please!!!! Thank you :)

  15. Penny says:

    My children had the same style crib to sleep in. All those pretty curves need another use. We had to get rid of ours before I could repurpose it due to a move. I think it would have made a nice mid-yard trellis for all sorts of pretty flowers and vines. The ‘bed’ part would be great for holding potted plants.
    Pinterest is my newest online addiction (like I need another).

  25. Shannon says:

    I love your blog! Especially the 100 DIY Christmas ideas! Thanks for sharing! Would you mind sending me an invite?!

  26. Kathleen says:

    Pinterest is awesome, and I found a great upcycling idea for cribs as well! ( just waiting for Abby to outgrow it.) I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned, but you have to have a facebook or twitter account to join Pinterest. Don’t know why. My mom had an invite, but couldn’t join because she had neither FB or Twitter to connect her. I just see loads of people requesting invites here, just passing on the deets!

  27. Kate says:

    I just started following your blog yesterday. My daughters (14 and 12) and I were thinking about getting onto pinterest together. We’d love an invite!

  55. Amy says:

    I just recently got into the whole crib repurposing craze thanks to Pinterest! All I had left from mine was the rail….so I’m painting it a pretty blue and propping it up against the wall to display quilts. I have seen some awesome ideas. Next baby, I am saving the crib to repurpose. Oh, and in case you are wondering, the reason we got rid of the crib to begin with, even though we want more kids…is that ours was a dropside that was recalled….and we couldn’t get the company to send us the repair kit…and we didn’t feel right giving it away or selling it with it being dangerous (the rail had already started dropping on its own while ds slept in it so we moved him to a twin bed)….now I’m slapping my forehead because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tutorial for turning it into a childrens desk..now that my son is almost 3 that would have been perfect!

    I have heard about this so much on facebook and how addicting it can be. I can see a lot of benefits to it for myself as a mom, wife, homemaker, blogger and photographer of newborns! Repurposing things for baby photoshoots would be a blast! I think I am reversed of this, though, and would turn grown up items into baby props! Thanks for sharing this link!
