You never quite know what you are going to find on Craigslist. Sometimes, you may even find something for free, but don’t let the cost fool you.
With a little bit of creativity and some elbow grease, you can turn something common into something quite awesome!
For this project, an old crib from Craigslist was used. It was transformed from it’s original state into a dog crate that was so beautiful, it doubled as a nice piece of furniture. This is something that every pet owner should have.
Not only does it give the dog a comfortable place to get away from it all, it looks great while doing it.
The crib was quality, so it was easy to cut
Side boards have been removed
