If you’re looking for a crib with more uses and a longer life than many typical baby cribs, than Novella Crib by Nursery Works may be just the ticket. This aesthetically pleasing crib is designed to be with your child from the infant years well into elementary school, converting from a stable crib to a toddler bed to a daybed (rails included) or into a fun and cozy reading nook (cushions sold separately). This crib is American made with a solid ash frame, bridle joinery, ash-veneered MDF, birch plywood and solid steel legs, so it will hold up to years of playing, climbing, napping and jumping. Finishes include safe, low-VOC, water-based stain and paint. The modern design means this piece won’t look out of place even as your child’s tastes evolve.
