Dude needs a place to sleep!
So we made it mission critical to choose and order a crib and some bedding.
I knew I wanted a white crib with a simple design. I finally narrowed it down to this one:
I chose this crib in particular because I really liked the simple design, the colour is a crisp white (as opposed to the creamy antique white at Pottery Barn Kids), the price wasn't too bad, it's made out of solid wood, and it had really good reviews.
We had to order it from the States though. The shipping quote they gave us wasn't all that bad, and the cost of everything worked out to be the same as the cost of a fancy-shmancy crib at our local Babies R Us. So we went ahead and ordered it.
Alex put it together and while it looks great, it also looks GIGANTIC in that teeny tiny bedroom. I just might have to re-evaluate my original furniture placement plan.
I'll show you a pic soon, k?
We also had to decide on some crib bedding. I was looking for a quilt and some crib sheets that had some soft colours. I also wanted the bedding to go well with the wall colour that I had already chosen. It was hard to find anything with a greeny-grey but finally I found this set:
Simple and cute, just what I like. The greens in the bedding go nicely with the wall colour of the room without looking too matchy-matchy. Just what I was hoping for!
We got the quilt, the bumper, the sheets, and a little pillow. (Apparently bumpers are bad now, though? Huh???) I wasn't a fan of the crib skirt so I'll have to find a different one from somewhere local.
I'll take a picture of the crib with the bedding as soon as I have a chance. I gotta jet though 'cause after a challenging work week for both of us, we're off for a dinner and shopping date. Oh yeah, baby!
Happy Friday! P.S. What are you up to this weekend?
