It’s becoming really obvious that my mom is excited for this baby. It will be her first grandchild and she’s definitely spent a ton of money on this kid already. For Christmas, she got us the glider I wanted for the nursery.
Then just last week, she decided she wanted to get us either a crib or a dresser. The hubs and I picked out the set that we wanted and rather than just buy one piece, she bought both and said she’d just ask my grandma and aunt to go in on it with her. She placed the order last week and by Friday, both pieces arrived on our doorstep.
I couldn’t wait to get everything set up so on Sunday, the hubs and I spent a few hours putting it all together until we had two perfectly lovely pieces of baby furniture.
The crib was super easy to put together, but the dresser was a bit of a challenge. Still, I’m really pleased with how they turned out, which was something I was initially worried about since they are, after all, from Wal-Mart. And I hadn’t seen them in person before.
We still have a long way to go as far as decoration and what not, but those are all just details at this point. We have a crib (w/mattress), a dresser/changing table, and a glider. MAJOR progress in my book, especially since I spent HOURS going through reviews and websites trying to decide which furniture to purchase. And for the price, I’m really happy we went with all Wal-Mart pieces.
Here’s our source list:
Oh and if you order furniture from Wal-Mart, spend the extra $20 or $30 to have it shipped directly to your house. My mom had the glider shipped to the store and we almost took it back because the box was so damaged. Not to mention it was HUGE and a pain in the butt to get home. For the crib/dresser, my mom had it delivered directly to our house and the boxes were in almost pristine condition, with no loading/unloading in an SUV. Worth it.
