Crib Makeover!

I am still working on a few things for the nursery, but her crib is finished! I Love how it turned out.
I just recovered a crib bumper from Ikea. (I bought it when we had two babies in cribs. I am glad I saved it!)

If you decide to paint a crib, make sure you get Paint with Zero VOC. Then you don't have to worry about it being toxic for the baby if they decided to chew on it! Most brands make it, and the hardware store can match it to any color for you!

I used THIS tutorial for the Sheet. (Easy way to spruce up your old crib bedding, sheets are so easy to make!)
The Fabric for the bumper and sheet is Heather Bailey. I had to order it from her shop. Most fabric stores don't carry it anymore. I got the pink stripes at FABRIC.com, my favorite online fabric store.

SUPER CUTE!! I love the bright yellow. Your baby is beautiful!! I have a question for you. I'm trying to make a baby wrap (similar to the one you made Kiersten) Can you help me out??? Thanks Lacee!!!!!! laceecurtis@gmail.com I just need to know the measurements and the fabric and how to sew it.. (HAHAH PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING:) THANK YOU!) I have seen some on blogs, but it makes me a little nervous to pull it all together. I've seen measurements for 20 inches wide and 5.5 yards long with a cotton spandex material?

Hey did you have a pattern for your bumper pads and bed skirt? I am contemplating making some because I can't find any I like.
