Baby Convertible SLEIGH Crib PLANS

The elegantly designed sleigh-bed style crib later converts into a 60″ open front youth bed and then ultimately into a full sized adult double bed! It’s a bed they can use from crib to college!

We’ve simplified the sleigh bed templates into easy to cut transfer patterns using common 2″ stock.

Start with the crib and as your child “graduates” remove the foot board and replace with the “youth bracket”. When the child outgrows the 60″ bed, add the two long rails and re-install the footboard to create an elegant full sized double bed!

The plans are designed around two standard 52″ by 28″ crib mattresses. Use two, one on top of each other in crib mode. Then as your little one grows, remove one mattress to maintain a minimum 14″ rail height. At toddler age, remove the footboard and replace it with the toddler bracket. Finally obtain a standard double mattress at 54″ by 75″ and create a full sized sleigh bed with foot board and headboard!
