How do I make a bench from a crib?

We lost my sister Marie as a baby in 1948, but Mom kept her crib and we still have it. My youngest sister was born that year, so she would like to make a bench from it in memory of Marie. Any ideas? I did see the section on headboard/bedboard designs, but maybe someone has done this with a crib and would be interested in seeing that. Thank you.
