Three months because I bought the toddler bed in March. I decided I wanted to paint it. It took me that long to get it sanded, primed, and painted. Last night I took down the crib and put together her big girl bed. She was so excited about it!
We went from this.
To this. Hurray!
She how excited she is? She has to model the bed for its intended purpose. I couldn't get her to stand by the bed and smile.
On a side note, we now have a crib taking up space. Anyone need a crib?For anyone interested, this is what the bed looked like prior to all my efforts. I have since decided that painting anything with slats is more trouble than it's worth. I have a side table sitting in the garage half sanded that is awaiting a similar fate with paint.
