My Craig’s List search turned up pure gold…a Jenny Lind crib (in good working condition) for only $15! The lady who posted it was advertising her garage sale, but I quickly emailed her and offered $20 if she’d hold it for me. She agreed and the crib was mine! The crib definitely has some spray paint lurking in its future.
It has been sitting in the garage for a few weeks because it’s been SO UNBELIEVABLY HOT here in the Midwest. Hot sun + spray paint + pregnant momma = not a good combination. But, yesterday’s weather couldn’t have been better so I dragged the crib out to the driveway and hit it with some spray paint.
pesky little beautiful spindles require a LOT of paint, so I’ll be back to post the “after” pictures…
