Don't you love it...

... when you find exactly what you're looking for at half the price??

Remember when I told you guys how in love with this crib I was?

I searched high and low and couldn't find anything I liked even a fraction as much.  On a whim, we went to Buy Buy Baby because we were in the area and had time to kill, and would you just look what I found?

Almost identical, right?  (I'm telling you guys... I had searched all over buybuybaby.com and never saw this crib.  Just goes to show that sometimes, you've got to get off your lazy butt and head down to the store.)  I prayed my little heart out that it came in white, and because God must take pity on desperate pregnant women, the sales clerk told us that it did. 

And then I saw the price tag and just about cried of happiness because it was half the price of the Restoration Hardware crib (swoon!).  Plus, I've signed up for BuyBuy Baby coupons and will get a refund of 20% when we go pick it up this weekend (double swoon!). 

The only downside is that I kind of hate the dresser that goes with it.  The lines just do not go with the crib in my opinion, so I'm on the lookout for a dresser that comes in the same bright shade of white as the crib and has straighter, cleaner lines.  Here's hoping the Lord is feeling merciful... ;)

I LOVE this crib. This is the one we almost got, except we didn't know if our little angel baby was a boy or a girl. If we would have known it was a girl... I was sold! And I loved the color that was in the store. That light gray color. Yay for baby Grace Riley... she is going to love her bed!!

We found our dresses at an antique store. We refinished it ourselves. Maybe that would be an option for y'all!

We did not do matching furniture and it turned out great! Check Burlington coat factory, they have cheap baby furniture!

LOVE it:) I actually found one at Target that was similar to one I liked at Pottery Barn. Even if we had the money I just can't see dropping almost $1000 on ONE piece of baby furniture! I love the gray color..do you have a scheme picked out yet?

love the crib! I'm with you on swooning over most things in RH. Why do they have to be so expensive?!
