Anyways, the story behind the crib is we bought it forever ago. Right after we bought the house. We were not even planning on having a baby yet. Greg called me at work and told me that he had found this awesome crib at a yard sale down the street. He sent me a picture on my phone (which I wish that I had to show you). I told him to get it.
Our little boys room is really small and this had a changing table that was attached. We thought this would be a great space saver. Little did we know that it would take a about 2 years to get it done. Greg started by sanding the awful yellowish finish off of it. We wanted to stain it. We tried and it wouldn't stain evenly. We then decided to paint it. I went back and forth on what color and then decided to paint it white. Which I am very glad that we did!
These are the handles. I used the Krylon Rubbed Oil Bronze that Thrifty Decor Chick talked about this last week. I LOVE them! I can't wait to get them all done. Then this is a missing drawer, it was way beat up. This week my hubbie will be getting it fixed.
This here is the finished product. I love how it turned out! I was nervous that my little one would have a hard time with sleeping in it since it is something new. Not the case at all. He LOVES his new crib. The bedding by the way was not my first choice. I found it at Savers for $30 dollars for the whole set and it matched the crazy wall color that I choose to do. There is a bed skirt, but I can't use it. All well. At least when I resale it I have the whole set.
I hope that you like it as much as I do! Let me know what you think!
