A batten is a technique of building that allows wood to shrink and crack. As it does, the builder adds small strips of wood over the tops of the cracks, thereby reinforcing the wood and protecting it from the elements..In essence, the cracks are filled and covered. Still, the weather-beaten look of barn sides is appreciated in the craftsmanship and style of this Milk Street Baby Relic Batten Crib.
Every inch of this crib is worked in the batten technique. That means that it has that lovelym weathered and worn, Eastern seaboard, reclaimed barn wood look that is such a huge design trend right now. Additionally, is also exceedingly strong and will last a lifetime. Better still, the crib is a four-in-one, allowing it to grow with your child until it turns into a full-sized bed and takes a full mattress.
