Crib: Before & After

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! 

^^ Before 

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.
