After 13 years our house is without a crib! We decided to say Goodbye to E's baby crib and get her a big girl bed. She just turned 27 months old and was getting too big for the baby bed. Goodbye pink crib! We found it a new home and sold it through Craigslist for $80.
Then we bought her big girl bed. I got a mattress, box spring, headboard and rails for $50. FIFTY DOLLARS!! Woot, woot! It took two or three weeks of searching every morning for about 5 minutes on Craigslist. I wanted a solid wood spindly headboard.
The headboard was just regular stained wood and was old. A coat of primer followed by my favorite pink Behr's Powdered blush and Ellie has a super cute headboard! LOVE. Even the dust ruffle was thrifted from Goodwill for $1!
