One of the most important and most expensive purchases that will be made by new parents is the crib and later the child’s bed. A convertible crib is one that will be used to safely hold the newborn to toddler through the night, but, as the name implies, will later be converted to either a youth sized or full sized bed. Most of these conversions are fairly simple and are a great way to extend the usefulness of a single piece of furniture. The typical crib can only be used for a year, maybe two, before the child is either too big or has learned to escape from it. Charleston Amish Furniture, which features handmade Amish furniture, has many convertible crib options to choose from.
Each one is handmade from a variety of kiln dried hardwoods. Many come in a variety of wood colors and stains as well. Most can be converted to either the youth sized bed or a full sized bed via a simple conversion kit.
