Did I tell you we painted the crib?
We painted the crib. ; )
The crib decided it was going to be AS DIFFICULT as inhumanly possible.
So you just get before and after.
I didn’t remember to take the pictures until it was partially taken apart.
The crib was a super generous gift from a family in our church that had seen lots and lots of love/babies.
So we figured a good coat of paint would do it wonders.
What we didn’t know was that the crib had other plans…
The poor, poor hubby spent loads of time spray painting it, only to have the paint wrinkle and not adhere well. So, he would sand it down and try again.
I’m not exactly sure how many cycles this went through, until finally I just decided I had put him through enough.
So, I sanded the whole thing down (again), was left with a pretty good base of white left, and then brush painted the whole thing white.
THIS is what the crib had been craving, apparently,
and it drank it all in without a problem.
Sometimes, spray paint just won’t cut it and you’ve gotta take the time.
Anywho, we don’t have our actual bedding for it yet (but showers are coming…hehhehe), so I just used what we did have for now.
Do you ever think of toys as alive like in the Toy Story movies?
Cuz I keep thinking about how happy these stuffed animals must be to have a kid own then again. hah.
In fact, the monkey is from MY childhood. 🙂
I think the white reeeally helped it.
Plus, it pops with the blue wall.
And that’s baby girl’s crib.
Can’t wait to have this whole room done! : )
