Used crib into kids' desk

I've seen a lot of ways to do this project online, but never a dedicated step-by-step description of the work that goes into turning your old crib into a desk the kids can use. So I went about putting one together myself. There are easier and quicker ways to turn a crib into a desk, but I went with materials and finishes that would look at home with the rest of our kids' furniture, which added some time and effort. While I'm happy with how it turned out, the kids are super excited to have a new arts & crafts space, and that's what really matters.
