We got it!

It looks so great in our little nursery! The things on the wall are just temporary, but at least it's starting to feel like a baby's room.

I'm planning to make a crib skirt out of the fabric that's hanging down on the side (if you even noticed it). I wanted to put it there just to see what it might look like. I think it's going to work!

By the way... is it creepy weird to use a mattress off of craigslist? Should we buy a new one? This one is 3 years old and has a 10 year warranty.

Oh too too cute! Love it!

Hey on your question on the mattress... one of the things about baby mattresses is that they have that plastic waterproof covering, so you can just disinfect that.. Nothing goes inside the actual mattress. We had to do the same thing and bought a used one. It was totally fresh and clean after I wiped it down a couple times. :)

Thanks for sharing little Lucy's room pic! So so cute! Isn't it crazy to think your baby is going to be sleeping in there one day?? It was always so surreal for me :)

Hugs.. Amy

I don't think it's creepy at all. I agree with the previous poster about it being plastic and can be disinfected.

Definitely not...all you need is a good mattress cover :)

not weird...not anything like buying a used queen sized mattress. At least you know what was going on in a baby's crib ;) really cute crib!!

What a great buy! I'm so excited for you! And I totally agree about the mattress, too. After all, you'll be wrapping it in clean sheets ... And it's so perfect for that room! And the dress looks so cute on the wall :-)

new mattress... I thnk... it creeps me out... but I suppose... environmentally speaking... crazy green folks... think it's a good idea to air out new matresses... soo your not exposing your baby to toxic gases... soo ... maybe used is better in that sense...

The crib is so cute! I did notice the fabric hanging but couldn't tell what kind of print it is.
I love the dress hanging on the wall also.
Lucy is going to have a lovely room. :)
