My computer is currently cooperating with me. I had high hopes that I could fix it myself, since I am the IT Director of my house and all. Not so sure that worked, but we are in business right now, so I thought I would show you what furniture I have purchased so far for the baby’s room.
I got the crib at Pottery Barn Kids and let me tell you, this was no easy task, but worth sharing because at the end of the day, I was pleased with the customer service.
I had a $200 credit card rewards credit that expired….well, almost a year ago. I am nothing if not tenacious, though, so that credit was not going to go to waste.
I first called the catalog (this is a catalog/internet only item) and they told me to call the number on the back of the card. The number on the back of the card told me to call another number, then that person told me to call back the catalog. This is after the course of multiple other calls in the meantime. I finally got a sales rep who agreed to honor my credit and I am now the proud owner of a backordered crib.
My color scheme for the room is gray, turquoise and pink (I promise to show you in another post when I get the bedding nailed down). So I (and when I say “I” I really mean my mom), want to paint the dresser a turquoisey color. I was going to buy this one from Mathis Brothers:
Only it was about $1200 and I would be having to match the bedding to the color of the dresser. So instead I decided to order this:
It is completely unfinished and now we (mom) can paint it the perfect color to match the room. It also was about $750 less than the one from Mathis, so a win all around. I opened it the other day and the drawers are sturdy, but the top and sides are a little thin. I think it will all come together, though, once it is all put together. (I will be painting the knobs to match.)
My mom picked this bookcase up for me when she was in Kansas City at the HomeGoods there.
It looks really cute in the room and I am excited to have some storage space.
My last big purchase (other than the bedding) is a glider! I plan to get a plain one and have a slip cover made for it by the upholsterer we use. I will keep you posted on what I buy.
