A couple of months back we stumbled upon a liquidation store in Lehi that has obscene deals on anything you can think of. Linens, kitchen appliances, clothing, electronics, furniture... You name it, they've got it. They're only open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10-3, but if you have time and are in the area, GO!! Sorry this is sounding like a commercial! Well, earlier this summer, Tom the owner (yes, we're on a first name basis) told us he'd be getting some cribs in. I started describing THE crib I've been drooling over for months only to find out that he was getting it in! Keeping in mind that this particular crib goes for anywhere from $175 to $275, we were able to snatch the beauty up for a mere $94! SOLD to the lady with the sock bun and leopard print shoes! Side note: Baby P has been sleeping in a playpen in our room for the last year, and we figured it was high time she move in with her big sister.
We made this beauty of a purchase while the Little Miss was visiting her folks back in the Carolinas for the summer. Unbeknownst to her, she'd be getting a new roomie when she came home! As if getting a new roommate isn't surprise enough, I decided to give the room an overhaul. The old decor wasn't awful, just wasn't really big girlish. I found the perfect paint color from Benjamin Moore called Robin's Nest. Surprisingly it only took a couple of hours to paint the whole room, and the color turned out beautifully!
I pulled out all the old linens and took out the drapes, leaving behind the white sheers. Besides paint, the only new things I purchased were a set of white sheets for less than $10 from Walmart, the white ceramic owl "piggie" bank from Soel Boutique in Provo for $14, and the blue ceramic bowl for $2.99 from TJMaxx. The pillows and comforter were all things we already had around the house. The Mister's Auntie C contributed the mesh tiered wire stand on the dresser, along with a mirror that has yet to be painted and hung. The seashells, starfish, and sand dollar are all ones the Little Miss has collected over the years. It's a huge work in progress, but so far I'm loving the results! And you wouldn't believe the pure joy and excitement on Little Miss M's face when she came home to a "new" room and roommate!
Thankfully they made it through their first night as roommates and still loved each other in the morning!
More pictures to come when the room is more presentable!
