We got a Storkcraft crib from Walmart in an espresso finish. It was exactly the style we were looking for (modern) and it was only $89 with free shipping. I can't fathom spending hundreds of dollars on something that I can get much cheaper, and all cribs must pass the same safety standards. It looks great in the room and feels super sturdy.
We are using DS' old crib mattress so we didn't have to buy a new one.
Tally879:We got ours (Graco Lauren) at Walmart. I decided to opt out of the free mattress because it was only an 80 coil mattress and from what I've read that's not firm enough.
This exactly! Ended up with a mattress from Target instead.
Target- we also went with the Graco Lauren. Inexpensive, well reviewed, and I like the look.
We'd debated a few more expensive options, but decided this will be temporary furniture (that will be beat up and chewed on and moved and bumped) for us, and we'll invest in a nicer set of furniture when he moves into a big boy bed.
Babies R Us - Summer Infant - Manchester - Dark Cherry. We purchased them back in...April or May. I forget which.
I loved the whole crib/changer/dresser set and the reviews on it were good. Also, the price was right since we need two cribs and two dressers. We bought the full-bed conversion kits at the same time, to avoid having the possibility of them not existing once we actually do need them.

We chose the Alma Bloom crib in coconut bought it at BBB. Call me crazy but the nursery is all white (walls, crib, shelves...) and the colors are going to come from her toys, books, ect....
We weren't interested in something that turned into a twin bed and we wanted something small.
