When I was pregnant with my son, my first pregnancy, I was a complete shopaholic! I was so excited, everything had to matching, top of the line, etc. Then along came my little princess. I wasn't so picky, loved hand me downs, all that good stuff. So when I set up my daughters nursery (as I say this now, I am kind of feeling bad, lol) I had just painted the room prior to finding out I was pregnant so I kept it the same color. I re-used my crib from my son, but when it came to the matching dresser I was like UGG. I didn't like it when I used it for my son so I definitely wasn't going to use it for my daughter. It had drawers underneath with a changing table on the top that you had to flip over=pain in the booty! So anyhow, I didn't put a dresser in her nursery....man that was a lot of background to get to my dresser story! As she got a little older she started asking me to paint her room a pretty color. Then we had to upgrade the bed, so I was on the hunt for a dresser. My problem was that the cute bed we purchased her was on off-white, not something you can just go out and find anywhere! Then I wanted something unique, pretty, and fit into my little budget=double hard! Here is what her bed looks like.
This isn't her room, just the staged Costco pic. So this last summer my sis and I were out garage saleing and I found the one! Then I asked the price $50.00....hmm I am kind of cheap. Was this a good deal? I called my girlfriend, she said "Offer her $30.00, but then if you love it buy it!" I offered her $30.00 but she came back with $40.00, then I said "Yes, please". (Can you tell I am a horrible barterer? I figure they priced it that price and that is what they want) Here is what it looked like before:
