Giving my Baby Crib new life

Let me start off by saying that I love antiques and any furniture with a story. Most of my house is furniture that my almond farmer or I have inherited from family members that have gone before us, or we have bought at estate sales or antique shops, or just thought they looked old. When I was thinking of baby furniture for our little almond farmer, I wanted to keep with the same trend and look for something that had the antique look. Being that my father keeps everything, I wasnt surprised to find out that my parents still had the crib and changing table that I used. I knew I wanted it, so I asked my Dad to pull it down from the old shop shelves and see what condition it was in.

So, my Dad sent me the pictures of what it looked like and it did bring me back to the childhood. Not because I could remember sleeping or getting changed, but because they screamed 80's to me. I was born in the 80's and the old oak color was a sure sign that these pieces needed some updating. After some begging to my parents, I convinced them to let me have them for my little almond farmer baby and to paint them! 

I had a vision of my baby nursery with white furniture, only problem was this oak set had a million spindles. My almond farmer husband took one look and said no way to sanding and painting. I mean just look at those spindles...I couldn't blame him. I was determined to have my old furniture set, so off I was to find a professional and make my dream come true.

The sanding took the professionals about a week, so I knew it would have taken my almond farmer even longer. I was happy to take one task off his list and hire it done. With the baby almond farmer due to arrive any day now, he has plenty on his plate. I could not be any happier with the finished results! I have my antique furniture for the baby nursery and I was able to give my baby crib new life. Now, we are just patiently waiting for the baby to come and enjoy it!

Until Next Time,
Almond Girl
