Nursery Furniture Headaches & Excitement! (Sneak peek)

Ok, first let me say that sanding and painting was a lot easier last year. Little Karoline doesn't seem to like it when I sit on the concrete floor in the garage! I think everything takes me longer these days than it did before I became six months pregnant!
I'm taking my time with the nursery furniture, but I have a few days off of work in two weeks, so I hope to finish everything then.
Here's a sneak peek of what I'm working on. All of the furniture will be black and I haven't decided on the distressing just yet. It's very likely though!

I have a small dresser/vanity, a large dresser that will be the changing table and a beautiful baby bed. I originally saw the bed in cherry, but found a natural colored one on Craigslist for about 1/5 of the price of a new one. Guess which one I bought?









Total investment in the furniture: $290!

The major savings on the furniture allowed me a little splurge room for other things, like the chandelier and the bedding!



I am getting so excited! About the baby, the baby...not having to redecorate a room, silly. Hah!

You've made some great furniture finds. That dresser is really impressive - it's going to look fantastic once you clean it up and refinish it :-)

Love the chandelier and bedding you've selected for the nursery. And I think it's great that you're going with not-so-typical black for the nursery furniture. It's going to be one very chic room when you're done :-)
