Nursery Snippet: Gold Dipped Crib

When I first started planning out my nursery I saw this gold dipped dresser on Pinterest and thought, "Yeah, THAT'S gotta happen." And then I kind of took the easy way out with my dresser and a gold dipped effect just wasn't in the cards.

So last week I taped off the crib legs, busted out my gold paint, and went to work. It was super quick and easy and totally worth my 10 minutes.

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Dang, I wish I had carpet like that!"

I'm still marinating on the prints for over the crib (what you see up there now is a cheap engineer print of a picture we took in North Carolina back in May. Still deciding if that- in color?- is what I want up there) but holy crap I am SO CLOSE to being done with this room. 

That little elephant lovey was my "faith gift" to my baby and myself a week after I got the positive test.

After two losses I was feeling very skeptical about this pregnancy's chances. I was too afraid to let myself get excited and I felt like I was just waiting for the pain to begin. A friend suggested a faith gift, something for my baby that said, "I have faith that someday I will snuggle you." I went to Target and got this little guy. Just the act of buying something for this baby seemed to do the trick- I finally got excited and allowed myself to believe I might get a baby at the end of this pregnancy!

We're almost there!

  1. I love the idea of a faith gift! I have had several friends go through the same hesitancy of being excited for their pregnancies after miscarriages, I'm so glad you shared so I can suggest it in the future.

  2. I love the faith gift idea!! I had two losses before this pregnancy and I worried the whole first trimester! I will use this in the future for sure. I love the crib, and the nursery is turning out great!

  3. It's looking SO good! and I love the idea of a faith gift. Maybe I should buy one to conceive ;)

  4. Loving the room - it looks super cute! I know what you mean about being done with the room, though - I get over my DIY projects almost the second I start them. :p
    ps. Just found your blog through Grace at Camp Patton! Looking forward to reading more!

  5. What a sweet idea about the faith gift!

  6. That faith gift is the sweetest thing ever, I totally got teary-eyed. Cannot wait to see this little girl! (You know, through technology. Or if we bump into each other in a restaurant again.)
