Reusing Children Furniture

Posted on January 23rd, 2014 by Freebie Felicia

At the end of the baby years we have quite a bit of little furniture laying around. There’s chairs, playpens, strollers, and car seats. We could get rid of it. Some of it will even save someone else a good deal of money. Some of these items no one will want, but we have found a way to reuse them.

Cat Furniture

It could be dog furniture as well depending on the size of the furniture or the dog. Furniture, like that little chair we got our toddler, make great pet beds. They are usually less expensive than a brand name pet bed. They also seem to be more comfortable for the pet. Our cats have never slept in their beds, but love the old baby furniture.


An old playpen can be made into a toy box. Little futons or chairs can be turned into a stuffed animal display. Even the tray of an old high chair can be reused as a movable table when I have paperwork or a craft I want to move with me from room to room.

Play Room Material

Playpens turned on their sides make great forts. Old furniture give lift to tent building efforts. Old car seats or bouncers with the right amount of toys help weigh down those things that need to stay put during playtime building efforts. If you have a particularly curious child a baby bounce can even be assembled and taken down with an adults help. At least until it can find its way into the home of a new baby.
