    It looks great. Keep in mind some things are sought after in wood colors nowadays, look into the boho style and see how you can make furniture fit into the boho style and you’ll definitely make money in that market.

    Just a word of warning for Europeans all paint for babies and children must meet BS EN 7-3; 201 standard also many countries will no permit painted or finished baby furniture to be re sold. Not even low VOC paint can be used it must be VOC free.

    I just want to mention that anytime you are looking to buy used furniture, please check for recalls. I used to work for a women's ministry that took in used furniture, including car seats. Nothing went back out the door without being run for a possible recall. You can go to the manufacturers website and run the serial number and date of manufacture. Honestly, you can purchase brand new and there still be a recall. My daughter-in-law had that happen to her. Thankfully, she had sent the warranty card in and the company contacted her. It's your baby's life! Please be careful 🙏 ❤. Lauren, beautiful job on both! 🙂👍👶

    I have a question, when you do chair flips its always upholstered, do you advise against doing leather? They seem to always be popping up free on marketplace. 🙂

    Love it. So releaved that you used the sprayer . At first I thought you were going to use it brush and I thought I was going to have to have a fit watching you brush it LOL. I refinished a dresser changing table combo recently that I'm having a problem selling. I didn't pay it much at all for it I believe 20 bucks I'm holding my price on it thinking it's just the holidays is why it's not selling right now 🤷

    This crib turned out so good. No telling how long it would have taken you if you wouldn't have sprayed it. Spray painting is definitely a game changer. Thanks Lauren for another great video !!

    I love doing pieces for the little ones. Makes you smile knowing that furniture is for the one thing in the world that is the most important to someone and they choose you to do it for them. ❤❤ I really need to try this all in one paint.

    Good flip but I was told cribs shouldn't be painted because the child will later start teething and will bite on the rails and of course that's not healthy, I was told this when my 2nd grandbaby was born and I mentioned painting the crib, is this right or does it depend on the paint?

    If I wanted a specific designed crib and a specific colour I would buy a second hand one and paint it the colour I wanted. Goodness people it was a commissioned piece , just leave it at that.

    How did you sand the sides of the slats? Did your sander fit between the slats or did you sand with a sheet of sandpaper or didn’t they need to be sanded?? The video did not show that.

    Beautiful set but I am JUST CURIOUS why somebody would pay $400 for a used crib when new ones of that type are like $200-300 bucks!?? Not trying to be rude at all but unless this crib was handed down many generations, wanted a specific custom color or was centimental in some way I cannot see them just buying a new one?
