Truck Crib with Changing Table

Sure there are cribs that come with a changing table. But have you seen one that is also a truck? It doesn’t only look cute and awesome, it makes the job easier too. This is definitely number one on our list!

Rocking Chair Cradle

This will make life easier for all the bleary-eyed parents. And when the kids outgrow the crib it makes great yarn storage and knitting chair. Before starting the project find a mattress and cushion of your choice and adjust the plan’s dimension accordingly.

Moon Shaped Cradle

Now, this is a DIY Crib that makes the perfect bedroom decor, too! But that’s not the only thing we love about the moon-shaped cradle – it makes picking up or laying down your child easier and it’s very inexpensive to make since you can build one using reclaimed timber!

Wine Barrel Cradle

Oh you know, just another awesome wine barrel upcycling project. 😉

Pumpkin Carriage Cradle

Aiming for a fairy tale-themed bedroom design? Then the pumpkin carriage crib is the one for you!

Cardboard Cradle

OK – this is not a DIY crib. It’s Album di Famiglia’s Customizable Cardboard Cot that costs $255. How is it customizable? Well since it’s a cardboard box, you can decorate it any way you want – paint it or simply write your baby’s name on the side… What are your thoughts on this unusual crib?
