There were several new pieces needed before the family could move in. The two children had been sleeping in the same room in the apartment and now they have their own rooms!
I missed out on the first crib we arranged to purchase. The seller told me she would be available in a couple of days and I arranged to pick it up at 11:00 AM on the day she specified. I called to say I was on my way when she said she had forgotten me and just sold it to another couple. Does not happen often but it does. She probably thought they needed it and loved it. So I don’t harbor hard feelings.
We found another white crib in good shape that is a little more tailored but quite pretty. Then we needed a baby changing table and dresser. The set we found also came with a nightstand.
It has another set of knobs if all white is preferred but the multicolored knobs looked cute. Our grandson also needed a bedroom set and we were looking for a nice color. We didn’t see one we liked so I decided to paint this one.
We chose a rich royal blue for his room. It was quite a bit of work to paint all the drawers, the cabinets and the bed, but it turned out really nice.
The blue hassock was also moved up to the bedside for a parent chair for bedtime stories. Perfect.
