The Craigslist Crib and the Marshall's Bedding

Here is the crib I purchased off of Craigs List.

..and some close up photos of the teething marks I talked about. I do not have time to refinish the crib before they get here, so I just scrubbed the 'bejeebee's' (Southern term..Deep Southern!) out of it!

Starting to assemble it..

The Crib Bedding

After searching far and wide and getting more and more frustrated by the minute, I found this nice crib set at Marshall's. Now - if we had our dream house..you know the one with the extra bedrooms...I would have designed a nursery from floor to ceiling.

..but because this crib will only be set up when my Grandbabies are here, this works out perfect. Oh - by the way..I refused to buy cartoon themed bedding..which still added up to costing almost $100.00. The higher end sets were over $200. This Noah's Arc set cost a whopping $39.00! Included were the comforter, the bumper pads, a fitted sheet and the dust ruffle. Origonal cost $110.00

It looks like a nice and sturdy crib and the bedding is beautiful. Gotta love cragslist! I didn't do the cartoon characters either.

This is precious. I turned one of our guest rooms into a nursery for our grandbabies when they were all small. It was such fun...They are all much bigger now so the nursery is gone. I sold the crib in a garage sale several yrs ago. Booo Hooo....now I want another baby around.
hugs, bj
