Ok, first of all, this may sound really ridiculous to everyone else, but it's my own little miracle. When I was 13 years old I went to Jefferson, TX with my family and saw an antique wrought iron crib and fell in love. I said that day that that's what I wanted in my nursery one day. Every since then I've looked and looked, pricing every one that I came across. About 2 years ago I found one for $500 and that was the cheapest one I'd ever seen, so I sadly gave up.
When we found out we were going to have a baby I started doing some shopping for furniture. The more I shopped the more depressed I got. Do we buy stuff that will last forever, but costs a lot? Do we just buy a bunch of mismatched stuff? Do we buy inexpensive stuff that won't last very long? I was getting really frustrated. I really wanted the pieces to at least look nice together and not look like a bad thrift store.
Well, Friday after work Dan and I decided to get out and go thrift shopping for fun. We walked in one of my favorite places and found my dream. It was an old wrought iron crib for $100!!!! I haven't been this excited about a thrift store find in a LONG time!
Sooooo, right now you need a tetanus shot just looking at it, so it's going to take a little work. But I'm so freaking psyched! Isn't it precious! And the same day I found an old dresser that will work great for a changing table. Now all we're looking for is an old armoire. Canton, TX here I come!! :)
