    I think I need new glasses... I thought the thread said "Craiglist coops!"

    I don't have any interesting coops currently but I did make one out of ducktape and wood last year... I will go to the old comp and find it lol. Not spectacular but I tried [​IMG]

    that is pretty neat [​IMG] DW would never let me do that with ours, it turns into a toddler bed and single bed frame too though so I can't blame her.

    Quote:Since drop side cribs have been recalled they are pretty easy to find for free or next to nothing. All I had to pay for was the hardware cloth, so it was pretty cheap.

    I was thinking that, ours is one of the last drop side models made but the drop side part isn't used when it's a toddler bed or single frame. It's still a really good idea though.
