Mobile bumpers: trying to match crib to existing furniture?
So, some background: hubby and in moved In together into my town home. We had to rent out his beautiful rancher. I had large dark stained wood fancy king sized master bedroom furniture and he had his great aunt's medium stained oak color queen sized master bedroom furniture. So we put his queen furniture in the guest room and just moved the queen bed to our 3rd floor loft. We had hoped to just pick up a crib that matched the oak stain but I'm having a heck of a time finding one. I love the really dark stain like mahogany or dark cherry colors but I don't know how we'll it will look when we put it in there. Maybe white will be better. But hubby also offered to move the remaining oak color furniture to our 3rd floor loft and told me I could buy all new baby furniture. My dilemma is spending money when we are renting a house at a loss, had to spend several thousand to get pregnant through a fertility clinic, and now we have to replace the wood siding on our house which will run at least 15k. I really like the miss-matched shabby chic look that some people do. We have a habitat for humanity restore around here where you can get old dressers for $40 or $50 and we can paint them whatever. I'd like to save money with everything going on and I'd also like to make this as easy as easy as possible too, not penny pinching to the point where we are making more work for ourselves.
has anyone tried to match a crib to existing furniture or picked an entirely different color crib and its worked well in your nursery?
