Okay so I told you a while back about the crib that we bought from Babies R Us. I LOVE this crib – you know – or we wouldn’t have bought it. But here is my situation. I’ve looked on baby blog after baby blog – (Chic & Cheap Nursery – Spearmint Baby and now Project Nursery) and I can’t find ONE nursery that has a dark crib that grabs me and says – this is it.
I want to paint, I want to get all the matching things to go with the bedding and you know – the whole nine yards! We (the hubs and me) would like to go ahead and start painting once we get the room cleaned out – hopefully in a few weeks – so we want a gender neutral color that we could add to when we find out what the baby is.
Then again though – I wonder if we should just wait until we find out THEN start painting and stuff. If we pick out bedding we like we could go from there. I don’t know – I go around in circles in this thought process.
How did you figure out what you wanted your baby’s nursery to be like? Did you wait to see if it was a boy or a girl or was it a picture that captured you and inspired you? If it’s a girl I definitely want a damask print on the bedding and maybe on one wall. That would match the dark crib but for a boy I have no clue. Maybe I just need to search more?
