So, we finally purchased something for baby!!! Well, we purchased half and it’s ordered! Step one complete. Even though we won’t be setting it up right away, it feels good to have ONE decision completed!
I shared with you a few weeks ago that my plan was a Tiffany Blue color on the walls (or a wall) and hot pink accents. Maybe a white “bookcase” in the cube style for storage? Check out my inspiration here.
I do really do love the white accents with the Tiffany Blue but I also love the idea of a crib that will grow with her into her childhood bed and we just love real wood, versus painted wood. Here’s what we picked out. It was HALF OFF! And, it’s great quality.
We’re thinking about this bed in “Merlot” [color in the top pic...the darkest wood they have available] which I swear isn’t too red! It’s more of an espresso color, but it does have a hint of red. We went back and forth though….every bed I found I liked came with the wrong dresser or the wrong color, etc. We picked out the double dresser without the changing piece on top. We are planning on getting the rails for the conversion now and maybe the trundle or drawers for under the bed in a year or so just in case they discontinue the color of wood in the future. I love the idea of her having a trundle bed or drawers under the bed someday and this was the only brand that had that option!
This furniture set is really expensive full price, we think, but at half off it’s the same price as the other convertible crib sets we were looking at. We know that there are definitely cheaper options but we like buying solid furniture. AND, this was my favorite design. We don’t like to buy the TOP of the line that we’ll be heartbroken when it gets damaged BUT we know that cheap furniture just won’t make it through a few moves. It falls apart! This set is really sturdy and we like that. You can find it here: Young America by Stanley.
Do you buy furniture that lasts a long time and is durable in moves or that you can discard and replace in just a few years when it gets ruined?
Link me to your furniture pieces if you’d like! I’d love to see!!!
