My brother and sister-in-law were cleaning out their garage recently and were getting rid of the baby crib my nephews slept in. I had to rescue it, yet somewhat maintain it.
I live in a teeny, tiny house and I came up with the idea to attach the side pieces to the wall in my kitchen and bathroom and use them for storage.
I attached some sticky-backed magnetic pieces to the wood to hang knives so they're always at the ready. I put stuff way up at the top that I seldom use - bbq skewers and bread basket. My parents gave me some heirloom silverware a while back and I twist-tied it together and hung them up high.
