For the past several weeks I have been trying to get together all of the baby necessities I currently don't own...one of which is a bassinet. I had a few different bassinet's "pinned" from various online stores but I wasn't super excited about spending $100+ on something I will probably only use for 2-3 months. Plus, nothing was really the style I had envisioned.
Thankfully, last week, my husband and I were making our traditional Thrift Store rounds and we happened upon this little beauty...
Isn't it charming?
and even more charming is the price...$3.00, now that I can do!
We had to laugh a little because this bassinet actually looks like a giant basket with legs and wheels... it even has basket-like handle bars. I couldn't resist re-naming it the "bask-inet."
I bought a fresh can of spray paint the other day and have high hopes that I can transform this run-down "bask-inet" into something super sweet and completely functional.
Since I haven't been able to do a nursery make-over, (due to a possible move in the near future) I'm excited to have a project for the new baby that I can work on!
Wish me luck, and look forward to some before & after photos!
