Fit For A King Or Queen

It's amazing that someone who knows basically nothing about pregnancy and babies can suddenly have very strong opinions. I am referring to myself here. I decided to browse online for baby furniture. I really only need a crib and changing table. I have the color scheme and decor all ready. Heck, I've had years to think about those things. I also have a mental image of what I want. White crib, sleigh bed style w/ beadboard on the ends. Of course I can't find it anywhere yet. But browsing I did learn that you can pay outrageous amounts for this stuff if you want to. Not me, I've always been a bargain hunter at heart. Don't get me wrong, I love expensive things. But only when someone else is paying (ie. parents).
Then I saw this one. Sheep and bees handpainted on each piece? Eeee...it's like a dream come true! Did you catch the price? Yeah, that was $1,099.99. Not gonna happen. Scroll down that page and you'll see they have round cribs. Who knew? I could get lost in all of this stuff.
