In major nesting mode with #4, I started looking for inspiration for my baby boy nursery. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do, but I did know this- My crib was in need of some serious help. My husband and I picked this out as soon as we found out I was pregnant with #1. That was over 6 years, and 3 kids ago! Because our kids are so close together, it has been in constant use since we brought our oldest son home from the hospital. That equals one pretty sad looking crib. Not to mention, that my decorating style has changed significantly in the past 6 years. I wasn't diggin' the cherry wood finish anymore.
But, a brand new crib just wasn't in the budget, so I had to give our old one a makeover. It was a lot of fun, took only one day and about $30. (notice the girly bedding in a blue room. Yes, I hated having my little girl sleep in a not girly room, even though I knew it was only temporary!)
