We lent DS's beautiful all wood bassinet to my BIL's wife's sister a few years ago. When she was done with it, she gave it to BIL for him to use for his new boy.
He returned it to us recently and said he "Fixed" it because it got "bumped around" between the two families.
It is DESTROYED. Scratched and dented is only the start. The headboard is cracked almost beyond repair. The two supports were cracked, glued and redrilled and bolted. The secondary supports for the bottom basket are completely broken away and beyond repair. They have to be remade.
We are so disappointed that someone would treat it in such a fashion. We don't even know if can be reused. I don't really want to buy a new bassinet, since it's such an expense for such a short period of time, but this one requires so much work and new parts, it may cost just as much as a new one to repair.
What would you all do?
