Old to New

Over the weekend my parents came to visit. They brought me an old antique crib (its roughly about 30+ years old, so for this, its antique!) I spend the better part of the weekend (ok, one afternoon/evening, late in the wee hours) sanding it down and repainting it. Sadly, my dorky self forgot to take a before picture. Just picture in your head would you, scrapes, teeth marks, bangs, bumps and chips, and really an old color of brown that one ever did see. I purchased some adorable bedding for Oliver at Babies R' Us. I was trying hard to find something that would match Owen's room too. Hard, but I did in the end. And its really cute. Sometime this winter or spring the girls will be moving into the mater bedroom and Owen and Oliver will be sharing a room.

Up close of the bedding and the mobile. Notice the little grasshopper

The finished crib. Isn't it pretty

Just to add, Oliver is the first EVER to sleep in a big boy crib in my room. Usually they sleep in the pack-n-play for the first 8 months, then travel to their new rooms once they can roll over both ways and find there own pacies. I think I might just have to keep him in our room a bit longer then that now :-)
