East Coast country cot bed - How do I convert it to the junior bed?!

I eagerly bought the cot when i saw it in a charity shop as i noticed it had the split ends, meaning it must be a cot bed...however i can't for the life of me see how to convert it! I have no instructions, has anybody had this cot and could give me some advice? Any help would be gratefully received!

Thankyou very much, although i did see that when i googled instructions but the bit where it shows the end panels coming apart, it has a big cross through it! Left me a bit confused :0/ i can't seem to pull the end panels apart, and theres no screws to take out to separate them either!

It should have those D screws in, just below the break?

Nope it's all dismantled from its cot mode, the D screws have been taken out and are in a little sandwich bag! I just can't see how to separate the back panels into 2 pieces, it's like the manufacturers painted it white when it was assembled as a cot because the joins where it should separate are all painted over (but not by someone, you can see the paintwork is how it would've been bought originally) so maybe thats why i can't convert it? :-S Very baffling..wonder if anyone else has had this problem!

I lost my instructions too but found them on Mothercares website. I too saw the cross thru the bottom half of the end of the bed & couldn't c how to turn into a junior bed. So I just pulled the legs whilst holding the top & it separated leaving the top half to be the bed end. Thought I'd add this incase anyone else has same prob.

Also, as in prev msg it does look like its painted over but it does come apart.

Sorry to hijack thread! Quick question - I also just bought this cotbed and am struggling to find furniture (wardrobe/drawers) to match!
Can anyone give me suggestions where to find something?

Resurrecting this thread to see if anyone can give me any reviews of the East coast Angelina cot bed? Boots has a good offer on it at the moment, and it seems to tick all the boxes, but would love to hear from anyone who has it and uses it?
