A bed that old probably does not meet current safety codes for baby beds. If you were planning to use it for a baby you first need to check current regulations.

Please post pictures and maybe someone can help you with the parts you need. Make your pictures a 1000px or less in width or they may not post. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/li...rt-images.html

No crib over 10 years old should be reused.
Almost all drop side cribs are a danger to the child.
Most likely also has lead paint.

Ignorance is bliss but we now know children were injured or died because of the way they were made. We could still hep you restore it but for decorative purposes only.

That could be very dangerous for the child as the drawer might slip and the child would fall on the ground. I also agree that that crib is way too old for a child. Better to borrow a safe crib from someone who is no longer using the crib than to do anything else. If you had to using an adult size bed with no one else sleeping in the bed would work in a pinch and be safer for the child. You could put the child on the middle of the bed as that is the safest zone for an infant.

I agree too with Ray2047 when he says we would be willing to help you restore the crib for decorative purposes
