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 the number one on our list!
This will make life easier for all the bleary-eyed parents. And when the kids outgrow the crib it makes a great yarn storage and knitting chair. Before starting the project find a mattress and cushion of your choice and adjust the plans dimension accordingly.
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!

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