Sooo - my Granddaughter is coming...My Granddaughter is coming!!!...and I went over to Craigs List to find a used crib. At 18 months old, she would not be comfortable in the smaller portable bed we used last time they were here. Well I found one that was a steel. I will post photos of it soon. While assembling it though - I discovered that its previous owner (the child) must have had a hard time teething, because there were some bite marks on the rails. When I put the main side rail on, there were even more bite marks..and I started to wonder if the previous owner might have been a dog! (just joking!) I wish like crazy that I had time to refinish the crib - but I don't think I can.
So - I started to look for bedding. HOLY COW! Crib bedding was 10 times more expensive that the crib! I became totally frustrated - because what seemed reasonable in price was tacky by design...and what was creative by design was painful in price!
I then retreated into the magical world of little girls bedrooms and stopped looking at price. Here is what I found at Pottery Barn. I know - I know ..it is over the top in Pink!..but Emily's (my oldest daughter) room was pink when she was little and I still have that soft spot.
