Discover a new way to wake up an old hand-me-down. Whether you're looking for baby girl room ideas or preparing for the arrival of a new little guy, this is a fun and functional project you can complete with plenty of time to spare. Feel free to experiment with paint and change colors to match your decor. When your little one arrives, you'll love spending time with them in their nursery and won't be afraid to tuck him or her in for the night.

Surface Preparation:

  • Unfinished Wood: Sand smooth and wipe clean with a tack cloth. Apply Primer to seal the surface.
  • Previously Painted Wood: Clean any dirt and loose paint from surface. Sand any imperfections smooth and wipe clean with tack cloth. Apply Primer to seal the surface.
  • Previously Stained Wood: Clean any dirt and loose paint from surface. Sand any imperfections smooth and wipe clean with tack cloth. Apply a stain-blocking primer, such as Krylon H2O Primer, to prevent the wood stain from bleeding through your paint finish.

  2. Spray entire crib with several light coats of Artic White. Let dry completely.
