Converting a crib to a daybed depends on the type of crib that you have purchased. Some cribs can not be converted because of the way the manufacturers made it, while others can convert three or four times until it becomes a twin or full-size bed. With the right tools and materials, you can convert your crib in a relatively short time.
Move the mattress support or spring to the lowest level in the crib.
Unscrew the bolts on the front panel of your crib with the allen wrench.
Remove the front panel from the crib and store it in a safe environment away from extreme temperatures or humidity.
Attach the guard railing, where the front panel was attached, by lining it up with the holes provided on the right and left front posts of the crib. Tighten the guard railing with the bolts and washers provided by the manufacturer (optional step).
Insert the mattress into the newly formed daybed.
