a date with spray paint…


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.


Those pesky little beautiful spindles require a LOT of paint, so I’ll be back to post the “after” pictures…


  1. WOW, that is probably the all-time 'find'! what a steal! can't wait to see the finished look!

  2. I think you have lot of knowledge about deco paint and to use which weather but nice purchasing good luck. Exterior house painting

  3. GREAT! this crib looks brand new, thanks for share with us.
