What to do? What to do?

So I found these on the curb a few weeks ago. Yes, they are the front and back of a crib. Do I need a crib? No, but the wood looks really good on these and I thought that surely I could do something with them! But I haven't come up with any good ideas. Some of the ideas I've come across are: garden trellis and bench. Neither of which would be useful to me.

So I am asking for all of your creative genius!! :)

What do I do with these?????

    The first thing I thought of was something like what Jenny from the little green notebook did. Here's the link to her idea: http://littlegreennotebook.blogspot.com/2010/02/diy-folding-screen.html

    I know it's not exactly the same, but I hope it helps! :)

    how about a bench for your laundry room, you could make the center seat part open up for storage, or just leave the bottom open and put some baskets there.

    I would use one to make a quilt rack (I'm actually looking for an old headboard for this). I saw a nifty wall-mounted coat rack made out of a headboard.

    I had two similar,but metal, headboard/foot boards. They came from an antique cot that was smaller than a twin. We refinished them then put them side by side and attached them to the wall. They made a great head board for a double bed!
