    This is a Jenny Lind style crib. At the time we needed a crib this style wasn't available for sale in Canadian stores due to the drop side regulations. I found one used on Kijiji (like Craigslist) and we painted it ourselves.

    Gosh, sorry for the delay! The elephant basket is from Pottery Barn Kids but no longer available. They have a new elephant and I spied an adorable turtle - on sale no less! The crib is wood. Its not visible in the photo but there is a chew guard on the crib rail. Its just a clear plastic piece that snaps on so babies can't chew the railing. That said, I used an eco friendly paint (Horizon by Dulux) so the offgassing would be no-low VOC. Modern paints don't have lead in them so that's the biggest concern in paint and babies. Chalk paint would be a good option as a baby friendly product also; natural, no VOCs, and you seal it with beeswax. Hope this helps!

    It's SICO Cashmere in Nova 6046-21. A subtle lilac with a slightly muddied tone to keep it easy to get along with.

Leith-Menard wanted a Jenny Lind crib, but when she couldn’t find a new one in stores, she turned to Kijiji, a Craigslist-like company that’s popular in Calgary. She found a vintage crib in the style she wanted, but it was a drop-leaf model, a kind that’s no longer made after a number of safety issues. To eliminate the risk, the designer removed the tracks that allow the rail to lower and firmly bolted the rail to the frame. She then sanded the crib and painted it with a nontoxic paint.Leith-Menard points out that when the baby was sleeping in the crib (she’s since moved to a toddler bed), she took out the pillows and the stuffed rabbit.

I like the design of this room because of the color that goes with it and also the design they did they did it for a baby with a warm color. - Color

I like this picture because it makes you feel excited about something and it make your eyes go from one spot to another. This picture shows color , the blue makes you feel like cool , the purple makes you feel royal , and the yellow makes you feel friendly or happy ! With is a fresh , peaceful, and pure color.
