Remember the new crib and sheet set that I wanted for my daughter’s nursery? Remember that it was going to cost me $274.78 for a new crib and the sheets that I wanted? That’s really not a bad price, but still, if I can do it for less and and save the money, I’d rather do that. So, that’s exactly what I did. And here’s my finished product!
I LOVE the finished product! And, best of all, it cost me less than $40 for everything!
I used my 2 year old son River’s crib that he had outgrown. It was originally white. I loved the curves of the wood, the drop side, mattress height adjustment, and teething rails on it, so instead of trying to buy the exact same one in black, I just painted it. I bought the fabric on sale at Hobby Lobby and set to making my own fitted crib sheets. The thought originally intimidated me, but it was incredibly simple to do, and is fitted and finished perfectly to look just like it’s bought from the store! You seriously can’t tell the difference. I’m going to be making a ton of these!
All in all, I’m extremely happy and proud of myself for how it all turned out! I saved over $230! That’s a good sized chunk of change!
What do you think about the end result?
