In true Kim style, I’ve begun to start obsessing about furniture for the nursery. Which isn’t that surprising, because I’m a nutcase.
While we aren’t planning to really start working on the nursery until we find out if we’re having a boy or girl, I do have an idea of what type of crib and dresser I’d like, regardless of sex. So, I’ve been scouting stores and Craigslist and online for the best deals.
Then, when my buddy, Michelle, at Decor and the Dog tipped me off to a crib at the local Salvation Army Outlet, I couldn’t get there soon enough. Luckily, Michelle was also up for a thrifting trip and met me there within the hour.
(You are totally jealous, aren’t you? We are so cool and had nothing else going on on a Saturday morning. Outside of cleaning the house, which could wait.)
While the crib search was a bust, I did find a perfect little antique dresser at a local antique mall.
As I was canoodling it and Michelle was enabling me to buy it, we found out it wasn’t for sale.
Then, miraculously, as we walked away and made our way around the rest of the antique mall, it was magically for sale again.
I like that it’s not huge, since we have a ginormous closet in the nursery we don’t really need a huge dresser. It’s really the perfect size for a changing pad on top.
I also like that it’ll be good for a boy or girl, has lots of character, could fit into almost any room in our home and was affordable. And I adore those little drop knobs.
It’s in great shape, and I’m planning to leave it as-is. Which is great, because I have no desire whatsoever to paint a dresser.
Thanks, Michelle, for making me go shopping on Saturday. Thanks to you, I have one check off my list.
Did you find any diamonds-in-the-rough this weekend?
