I don't know exactly which number it is, but "And it converts to a daybed!" has to be one of the biggest lies in the entire Crib Industrial Complex. Because the reality is, you either keep that crib out, and full of babies, or you put it the hell away for a few years. And then a few years later, if it hasn't been recalled, you finally
get around to Craigslisting it. [UPDATE: Not anymore, baby. See the comments.]
You could do what Caz did, and turn that old dropside crib into an entirely plausible, kid-size desk. Well-done.
