The past month we’ve been a little busy trying to get our little nursery together. There is still a little ways to go with decorating but so far the big stuff is complete! I’m pretty proud of us for all the work we’ve done!
We decided instead of buying a brand new changing table and dresser, we would check out garage sales and Craigslist to see if we could find anything that might work. We lucked out with both!
I found a changing table at a garage sale for $10 and couldn’t pass it up. It even matched the crib perfectly. Keeping it brown was not much of an option for me so we decided yellow would be fun. About 800 cans of spray paint later, it was perfect! Dan did about 99% of this project since the spray paint fumes were so strong and he did such a great job. :)
Next up was the dresser. I searched all over Craigslist and finally found one for $60. Dan wasn’t too thrilled with it because it was not in the best shape. It’s definitely not the nicest dresser out there but I fell in love with it and really wanted to make it work! Fixing it up ended up being a MAJOR headache (just like Dan predicted). I’m pretty sure we could have bought a couple new dressers for the price we paid in paint and supplies for this one. ;) It all worked out in the end though. I am so incredibly happy with how it turned out! (And how cute are the knobs I added!? Thanks to Hobby Lobby for having them for 1/2 off!)
It’s been so much fun seeing the nursery come together. With every project we complete, it makes it that much more real that in just a few short months, there will be a little baby sleeping in there! :) We cannot wait!
