White and Gold Crib

I’m always amazed by all the treasures you can find on a tag sale.
Lucy is due in December for a baby girl, and she asked me for help to find a crib for her daughter. I happened to come accross this one while hunting for something else on a Facebook Tag Sale, and Lucy quickly snapped it up. This is a gem by Young America! A new one goes for around $700!

Her baby’s room will be white and coral. She wanted me to find a match for Pottery Barn “simply white” and I was lucky enough to find it in 5 minutes, just by browsing the PB’s customer service section on their website.
The color is Benjamin Moore “Swiss Coffee”, and I painted the gold details with liquid gold leaf.

Once again my new best friend (the paint sprayer) didn’t let me down. For the golden details, I used a thin, good quality paintbrush.

I think even little pricess Charlotte would be jealous of this crib.

Thanks for reading!

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
