So we we're expecting and we started to look at cribs.  We wanted a 2-1 crib that will turn into a twin.  My brother in law gave us the side pieces (rails) to his old crib, so I needed to build a headboard and footboard that would go with what he gave us.  ​My wife started to browse online for cribs that she liked and she asked for something that would resemble the "Natart Rustico Moderno Crib".  So I tried my best... more photos and tips on my blog.
