I found the bedding I wanted for Liams nursery, but there was a bit of a problem... it was $330! Sooo not in my budget. But I was really stuck on that design, nothing else seemed to float my boat if you will. It is called Chocolate Dots from Dwell Studio. I was determined to find it cheaper, so I started browsing craigslist in Los Angeles and Orange County since they are not too far from us, and Ryans brother lives in O.C. I searched for months... nada. Then a light bulb went off! I googled "Dwell Chocolate dots crib bedding craigslist". I found a lot of expired listings, a few were STILL too expensive, then BAM... the mother load! In Burmingham, Alabama the entire 4 piece set was listed for $50!!! I prayed and prayed then emailed her to ask if she would be willing to ship it to California, for a fee of course. She was sooo nice and responded right away. YES she said. She would ship it for $25, totally worth it, since she had to take time out of her day and everything. I was a little nervous but I paid through paypal which is pretty safe. Right after I contacted her, I paid, she shipped, I received it 4 days later. It is in great condition too. I still can't believe I got $330 bedding for only $75. Go craigslist!
We painted the walls a very light blue, much lighter than the walls above. I'll take pictures soon of the progress. I'm going to go with a light blue, brown, orange, and white color scheme. With hints of airplanes here and there, but not "themey". I can't wait to show you more. 3 1/2 more months til Liam gets here! I can't wait.
