If you don’t have your child yet,
Or… your grandchild would be delivered soon,
Let me propose my idea.

As we know,
the cradle will be an extreamly useless furniture,
when our kids glow up enough.
what is worse, it takes up much room.
and we must buy another furnitures for them,
such like a sofa(bench) for playing, a desk for studying.

I want to show you several pictures before going on my words.
It would be better help for your understanding.

1. with a mattress, it could be used as a cradle...
I want to tell you, “please don’t install the top too low for your waist.”

2. if you remove one of the guides and lower the top to 10~15 inches high,
it could be used as a sofa, or as a bench with some cushions.

3. please notice that one of the stretcher is removed for the shinbones of our kid.
If you lay a tempered glass panel on the top, it could be used as a desk.

Now, I list the components…
You just can ignore the metric-dimensions which I inserted at the image.

4. Sides ( 2EA )

5. Top ( 1EA )

6. Guides (2EA)

7. Stretcher (2EA)
It’s so simple that you can aware what it is without any pictures, I think.

materials – 2X4 wood, bed-bolts & nuts for assembly decorations – some carvings, scroll-sawn patterns(heart, star…), simply painted something

This is a novel piece of furniture. Cribs that can be transformed to toddler beds are fairly standard but this type of transformation I have never seen. It is an interesting idea.

Thanks for the post.
