Here is the "dana" crib from PB kids. Isn't it lovely?
I found a Legacy crib on Craig's list that looked a lot like the one from PB and it was waaaaayyy less. So much less. We bought it, and Charlie brought it home. Sadly, the antique white color of the crib did not match the antique white color of the dresser we planned to use in the room.
So, I took a knob from the dresser and went to my paint store. I made sure to tell them that it was for a crib so I could get the safest kind of paint, and matched it up.
It's hard to tell, but the piece on the right is the end of the crib and it is yellower than the dresser. You can tell, can't you? You all have that discerning eye, I know it.
So I sanded and painted and spent inauguration day painting the side rails. Those were quite tedious. Very tedious.
Here is the final result. I think it turned out pretty good, didn't it? AND, so similar to the one from PB for so much less.
And, my house has a crib. MY HOUSE HAS A CRIB. It is quite the step forward for us. And very "out on a limb." Hopefully within this year, this crib will have an occupant that will cuddle up in it and love how much work mommy put into it.
Me...a mommy! Wow. That's a heady thought.
