When my wife and I started looking for a crib several months ago we weren't too optimistic. It seemed like the words "affordable modern" and "crib" just weren't compatible. We knew we had the choice of settling for something that was less than what we really wanted, or splurging and getting something beautiful that would hopefully hold up for a long time. The truth be told, due to budget constraints we probably would have ended up getting a crib from Ikea, and painting it white. Luckily for us, the folks at Nurseryworks were kind enough to help us out, and support Grassrootsmodern by sponsoring our nursery. We ended up getting the Aerial Crib with a diamond end panel, all white except for the light pine rails. While the price tag for this crib is out of our meager budget, it is pretty close to the price of most of the other modern cribs. The quality is truly exceptional. We have been totally impressed by the finish on entire crib. It will without doubt last us for a long time to come.
