Nursery furniture

It's been a while since my last post. . . but I have good reason. No sanding or painting in the first three months of pregnancy! Now I'm 16 weeks, it's time I got on with some up-cycling projects, and having to furnish a nursery is the perfect excuse. 

My first project is the cot! This is the cot that I slept in, as well as my younger sister and brother. My mum and dad got it out the loft for me last weekend. Here it is now:




The cot is blue and a very faded shade of pink. It has a couple of large stickers and six little animals on springs:




So the search for child friendly paint begins! Off with the stickers, and I'm not sure what to do about the little animals. What do you think?
