I had originally planned to make crib sheets, but when I saw these cute Harper polka dot crib sheets from Pottery Barn Kids, I knew they’d be perfect. At only $19, it wouldn’t be more than making them myself And it’d mean I’d have to make one less thing for the room. SOLD!
Unfortunately, they were backordered online. So, my mom saved the day and picked me up two sheets. I’m kind of in love with them. They are really a nice coordinate with the curtains. Fun without being overpowering.
I’m thinking of using a navy sheet I have to make a simple pleated crib skirt. Something like this one – using ribbon for the stripe.
In other news … we bought a twin mattress for the nursery and Ryan built a really cool bed frame for it. We were thrilled to find out that the local Salvation Army sells brand-new mattresses from a local factory (it’s actually right down the street). For $100, we came home with a hyper-local mattress that is darn comfortable.
I have plans for it to faux-upholster the frame to make the edges bump-proof. I’ll also add lots of pillows to make it more like a daybed. Since we don’t have another bedroom, this could serve as a guest bed or a nice place for us to relax with the baby. The pugs already approve and have decided it’s their new favorite place to hang.
