Jenny Lind Toddler Bed

Wow!  I got so lucky on Sunday when my Craigslist dreams came true.  About two weeks ago I found a sweet Jenny Lind toddler bed (discontinued back in 2006) on craigslist for $25.  It looks exactly like the bottom bed in this photo also seen here.


The lady said it was still available but because she lived 30 minutes away and wasn't able to meet but in the evenings, I told her we would like to pass on the bed.  Then after discussing with my husband how he would have no time this month to make our daughter a bed from scratch using fabric for a headboard and how it would cost at least $75 to make a bed, I wrote back to the lady to see if the Jenny Lind toddler bed was still available.  She didn't respond for an entire week but finally yesterday she told me that it was still available and that her computer was giving her problems all week.  Oh sweet Day!  So Joe drove down Sunday night to Cary to pick it up. Luckily I still had $25 in my wallet for when I thought we were going to buy it two weeks ago.  

So now my head is spinning with ideas for paint colors.  

I could go classic white as seen here.


Or here.


Here as seen in Land of Nod.


 A pretty aqua as seen here.


And here. BTW, if the bed we found was a twin (which maybe we'll get later on the down the road when she outgrows the toddler size) we can make a trundle bed to match.


Black is always classic! Seen here by Land of Nod.


I love this room. Here they are painted them a soft gray.


It's raining a lot here, so painting the bed is going to have to wait until it clears up. In the meantime, we're planting tomatoes, green peppers, and cilantro in the garden.
