Aloha! It's been a month since my last post. Pregnancy gives me up & down moods on pretty much everything. All I want to do lately isNAP. Today I wanna share my crib project.
To better keep an eye on our new baby, I decided to make room for her in our bedroom. Besides, I want my 8 year old daughter to enjoy her room a little longer to herself. Our room is so small that I was just going to get a bassinet next to our bed. Then I learned that there is such thing as mini-crib. Mini crib width measures about 41 inches vs 55 inches for the standard crib. I measured our bedroom, and mini-crib fits perfectly next to our bed!
While shopping for a crib, I came across Lullaby Paints. I have been talking about paint withdrawals I've been having, and I was beyond ecstatic to find out there is such thing as pregnancy & newborn paint. I immediately had to find a reason to paint. I thought about painting the crib right away. Buying a brand new crib just to paint it didn't make sense, so I decided to buy a second hand mini-crib. (Thinking if I screw it up painting it, I wouldn't feel so bad.) I found a Mini Crib on Craigslist. I did my homework on the model and specifications of the crib to make sure it's not on recall list and meets the crib safety standards before buying it.
