i blogged previously about the fabulous lime green IKEA Somnat crib we’d picked out for our baby. last night, we assembled it! (and by we, i mean, my wonderful artist-husband.) yes, i know it’s still a little over seven weeks until baby is supposed to show her precious face, but things are already starting to get busy with thanksgiving, christmas, and new years plans. and our little kumquat is due just 10 days into the new year! so, husband got out his trusty cordless drill (who doesn’t like an excuse to use to use a power tool?) and assembled away. of course, this was after we’d measured everything in the room, plotted out the dimensions on a photoshop grid, and did some virtual rearranging to figure out how to actually fit the crib into our room.
isn’t it lovely? i can’t stop looking at it!

Love it! Was wanting to get that exact crib from Ikea but the nearest one is about 500km away. Might just paint our old one…maybe green? Great to hear that it has great reviews. It looks awesome and the crib sheets rock!
oh, we just LOVE this crib. i am sorry you don’t have an IKEA closer to you!! painting the one you have sounds like a great idea, though. you’ll have to post a photo on your blog if you decide to paint it!
