Gloria Nursery and Bedroom Reviews
So I've decided to show you the before pictures of two more Gloria playsets I bought. When you take a moment to look beyond the gaudy colors, you realize how many great items you get for a very reasonable price. I am reviewing one of the nursery sets and one of the bedrooms.
So this is the full nursery set. Most of it will be painted or transformed in some way. There are a lot of great pieces to work with.
The items in this picture are what really made me decide to get this set. This baby carrier is very nice and will probably be covered in fabric. Behind the carrier is a baby monitor set. Kendra will be getting that as one of her gifts. Don't tell her and act surprised if you see it. The box is a box of pampers. The thing on the left is where the baby lays and plays, while mommy does something constructive.
I love, love, love, this little dresser. Only the top drawer opens. You will more than likely see this in Ciana's room first. On top are three baby bottles on the left, a dish and spoon in the middle, and a tray of odds and ends on the right.
This circular crib is very cute. I'm not crazy about the fabric drape. I will need to make one that is nicer. The baby comes with the set, too.
Here it is without the fabric. You will more than likely first see this in Kendra's birthing suite after she has the baby. YES, she will eventually give birth. LOL!
The next set is a canopy bedroom set. They have a few different sets. I picked this one for the canopy and the working night lamps. It's still up in the air who will get to use this first. Monica is on the potential list.
Not sure what color I will be painting this bed. I'm open for suggestions. Once I paint it, I will then decide if it needs any fabric.
The folded tray is going to look great painted. I like details.
The base of the bead is cardboard. I will add a cushion and new bedding.
And the best part... the lamps. The battery sits in the nightstand.
The second person vying for this bed is Naisha. It's nice to know this bed is large enough for the FR dolls.
One of these ladies will be getting a new gentleman friend soon. We won't know which one until he arrives.
P.S. I have been having major internet issues. So much so that I am getting new service on Tuesday. Yay! We will be returning to the baby shower in a couple of days.
