Once the nursery was cleared out, we were able to build our little boy’s crib. Very generous friends of ours passed along their daughter’s gorgeous crib (thank you Shan & Mike!). It looks fantastic - I love the beautiful dark wood and classic silhouette.

I’m looking forward to the arrival of the fabric from so we can start making the crib skirt, bumper and pillows, which we’ll pair with classic plain white sheets. I can’t wait to see this all come together.

      However there's a very similar looking design from BSF - the Madison Sleigh crib. We were looking at it before we were given the one we have, and it's very reasonably priced (and convertible!). You can find it at Sears and I'm sure many other places:
