The crib is available in four finishes: black, white, natural and dark pine, and can be assembled as a crib in a few short steps. The crib should come with bolts, screws and an Allen wrench. Jardine recommends having an extra person on hand to assist with assembly and that the crib be put together on a smooth, soft surface to ensure the finish does not get damaged during assembly.

Attach the right-front post to the slatted right end panel by putting the wooden dowel in the appropriate hole. Secure the two pieces using the 2.5-inch and 3-inch bolts and the Allen key that came with your crib. Repeat for the left-front post and slatted left end panel.

Join the mattress support to the posts using the Allen key and the 1.5-inch bolts. The mattress support should be level and center before you tighten all four bolts on the mattress support.
