Justin and I talked several times about what we wanted Hadlea to sleep in when we first brought her home since she will be in our room. We went back and forth between a cradle and a bassinett. We had first thought about the pack-n-play but I wanted it in the living room and would not want to move it back and forth every night. One day I was looking on Craig's list and found this cradle for $40. I thought it was adorable! Justin and our neighbor painted it black. My aunt had planned to make me a bumper to go in it, but then I found a 3 piece cradle set at Babies R Us! I thought it looked so great in the black cradle...it is just so simple with the little pink outline and pink ties.
Before and getting ready to paint!
After...with the bedding!
(The ties are a really soft pink, but I think they look white here)
