Antique baby crib

I found this really awesome antique baby crib at a yard sale, its gotta be OLD (like 1890's maybe). There is not a single nail or screw in the entire thing, but it was in pretty rough shape. It looked like it had fallen out the back of a truck. I sanded the thing down really well (there was probably 6+ coats of thick finish on it) and refinished it with a more modern look. The base was reinforced with new brackets and upgraded copper lock pins.Overall I think it turned out fantastic and will make a great baby gift for the upcoming baby shower.
