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?

What does everyone think?

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.

I don't see blue as being only a boy color. If you like the color I would stick with it regardless of the sex of your baby. :smile:

We were gonna do blue.green and yellowe regardless of the gender. we were just gonna add some pink if it was a girl. I think the crib will be fine! Do you have any pics of it? Or your nursery?

Here is what we have so far!!! There is still a lot more to do though but we'll wait until we find out the gender.

I love your nursery so far. It is cute. I think that it would work for a boy or a girl.

I think the blue is just fine!!!!!

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!
