Creative Recycling + Advertising

Ever wonder what to do with your kids’ old crib, the one that no longer meets the safety requirements and therefore shouldn’t be passed on?  I had one of those.  I decided to tear it apart and turn the pieces into something useful.

For this one I took the bottom of the crib, where the mattress sat, and took off all of the hardware.  It was sanded, primed and painted with chalkboard paint – voila!  Instant chalkboard.

Chalkboard art is all the rage right now.  I took my new chalkboard and decked it out with some fancy writing – voila!  Instant invitation into my open house for people walking by.


krista’s home office also fronts as an art studio. perfect spot to do creative real estate marketing.
