Thrifted and Vintage: Bassinet

For the past several weeks I have been trying to get together all of the baby necessities I currently don't 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!


  1. it's beautiful! don't you love it when you find something old that is better than everything new AND it's super cheap!? it pays, quite literally, to like vintage. happy nesting!

  2. Wow for $3 you can't beat that! I'm interested to see how you transform it!

  4. I guess I never told you, but I had one just like that for you when you were a baby. Great Find!

  5. Awesome!! I had one like that for my babies too!!! Exciting news for me I want to share- I just found out that my daughter and her significant other are expecting a Baby Girl in May!!! This will be my first grandaughter after 10 BOYS!!!! Excited, me!!! I'm currently living in England and won't get to be there for the birth(except on SKYPE, GOD BLESS SKYPE) and so I'm looking for a special white or pink frilly newborn gown/dress for Alyssa's coming home outfit. (Yes, they already have her named too!!!) I'm sooo happy!!!
