My cousin was so sweet to give us her old crib, and I was thrilled that Shane was willing to refinish it to coordinate with some furniture that he antiqued about 4 years ago.
It was a quite process, and with Shane's long work hours and terrible commute he had very little time to work on it. It is all finished now, and as I write this post Shane is painting the nursery!
He sanded it down.
Then he painted it white.
And sanded it down again along the edges to make it look distressed.
Then he stained it.
Then did 4 coats of non-toxic poly.
Here is the furniture Shane antiqued before.
^^ We will use this as a changing table.
^^ And this will be a little nightstand by the glider.
