Painting Davis's Crib!

On Mother's Day weekend, Aunt Lynne found me a crib at a yard sale for $55 and it was exactly what I wanted!  Well, except for the color.  
The crib was a pretty wood, but it didn't really match the nursery.
So this weekend, I painted it grey to match the nursery's grey & yellow color scheme.  
I used "Granite" (Satin) spray paint.
First I laid out all the pieces.
And then I painted 2 coats on each side.
Voila!  Now we have a grey crib!
My favorite feature is this drawer under the crib.
I heart storage.  
Now Davis has a big boy crib!  :)


  1. I love the grey color! Thanks for sharing! Have you found that it has held up well or has it chipped or scratched easily? I'm considering spray painting my crib but I want to make sure it will last. Thanks!

  2. It's held up really well Savanna! He's 16 months old now & it hasn't scratched at all. But...he hasn't chewed on it either, so I'm not sure if it would come off if he did??

  3. Hi, I'd like to do something similar with a crib. Did you do any research to find out if the Rustoleum spray paint was safe for the baby? (teething, etc)
