Baby Crib

Tony had an old Jenny Lind crib that was missing one of the up and down metal rails.  That was the only thing missing.  It was originally a maple color.  I ordered new parts to include the rail....mattress holder, and new teething bars.  I refinished it in black for my daughter Chrissie, who is pregnant and due with my 3rd grandson in July.  I recently presented it to her at her baby shower.  She LOVED it!  I also refinished the changing table to the left of my daughter.  This was given to her by her generous cousin Melanie and I refinished it to match the crib.
Here's a closer picture of the changing table.
I also made the baby bumper set out of material that Chrissie had picked out.  She is making a baby quilt for the baby and I used 3 of the fabrics that we ordered especially for the baby bumpers.  I used the Fairfield Nu-Foam for the foam also has a pattern written on the paper insert.  I added the orange wasn't part of the pattern.

Hi Kathy! I am a friend of Betty's and was wondering if you could share with me the steps and products you used to paint the furniture, which looks amazing. I am going to help my daughter paint some furniture black and would appreciate any insight you can provide. My email address is and my name is Michele. Thanks!
