So we're about 11 weeks away from this little guy coming into the world and we don't have a name solidified yet. Yeah I know... some people have challenges with this right up until and after the baby is born, but I'm hoping to find a name soon! I've been looking at a lot of lists, but this is the coolest one I've found yet. It's a list of names that have my last name. I don't even know how I found it, but I intend to study it closely.
Ok... so the hubby didn't go for the Ikea crib but we found a nice alternative on Kijiji that we're going to look at this weekend. Now that the crib is taken care of, let's move on to fun stuff!
I think I mentioned before that the room is blue/grey, and I want to pull in bright greens to contrast and maybe some hits of blue and red. (And in case you're wondering and I haven't mentioned it, I'm having a boy which is why all the greens and blues -- not that you can't have those colours for a girl!).
I was at my sister-in-law's house on the weekend and she piqued my interest in Ikea cribs. I honestly didn't know what to think about them because when I've seen them in the store they always look grungy. But the one she has is on it's third boy and it's still in pretty good shape. I decided to look into it.
Low and behold ohdeedoh had a post on Ikea's new Somnat Cribs in pink, blue and green and people in the comments section were raving about the quality of Ikea cribs. Although I don't think I'd go for the colourful versions, I'm coming around to the Gulliver. It's white, made of real wood, may be recyclable and to top it off it's $139.00. With this price tag I can afford to get my organic mattress. It's a win-win really. The only downside I can see is that it's not as nice as some of the other cribs I've seen out there. But I'll just fancy it up with some fun sheets and crib skirt.
