Someone in my area was selling a Jenny Lind crib, changing table, mattress, and changing pad for $100. It's in fantastic condition and looks brand new. My Mom went ahead and told me to get it because it was such a great deal. The only problem is the crib is painted a very light baby blue.
I don't want to repaint it. I don't think it will look good if I try and put white or another color on it. I actually really like the blue color. It goes with my "cloud" theme.
Does it really matter if the crib is a boyish blue even if I end up having a girl? I'm pretty sure I am having a boy but then again I might be wrong. I just don't want to go through the hassle of painting over it and possibly ruining the pieces. I could always offset the blue with purples and other "girl" colors, right?
I would leave it! Like you said, you can always add other colors in the room.
We THOUGHT Sam was our last baby so we painted his changing table a slate blue color to go with his room, it looked SO nice! We ended up selling it at our yard sale, a lady loved it!
It actually worked out because we bought a dresser/changer combo for dd since her closet is small so I wouldn't have used the changing table anyway, lol.

Wow that is a really good deal! I think blue isn't just a boy color, it can be a girl color too, and like you said you can put other colors with it. I think your nursery and everything looks great!! Have fun decorating, you will enjoy it!
