Selecting the right furniture for your upcoming arrival is very important.  You want your room to look perfect, and be safe for your baby.  It can be a difficult process to select correct baby furniture, especially if you are looking for antique baby furniture.

The first place to look for antique baby furniture is to ask your relatives if they still have any old baby furniture.  You may have access to some beautiful pieces of furniture, and you didn’t even know it.  You can create a beautiful room with priceless furniture.

You can also check auctions and second hand stores for antique baby furniture.  They will have some great deals on some beautiful furniture.  Keep your eye out for furniture sets, that way it will be easier to match up the whole room.  It may not even matter if it matches to you.

The internet can be a great resource for finding antique baby furniture and accessories.  There can be such a wide selection to choose from, and you can find a lot of antique dealers on there.  Be sure you shop safely when browsing online.

The first thing you want to look at on the furniture.  You want to make sure it is up to safety standards.  You want to make sure that it will not break apart or be a hazard to your little one.  If there are any repairs to be made, make sure you will be able to do so before the baby arrives.

If the furniture pieces are painted you will want to check them carefully.  Furniture pieces that were painted a long time ago could have been painted with lead based paint, which can be quite hazardous.  Have a professional test it for lead based paint before your little one arrives.

Make sure the furniture you are looking to purchase is sturdy.  You do not want the piece to fall apart, especially when your baby gets a little older and decides that want to learn to climb on it.  If there are any repairs that need to be completed, make sure someone who knows what they are doing fixes it. 

There are a lot of things to consider when shopping for antique baby furniture, but you can find yourself a real treasure.  Make sure that it is something that will go well with your theme, and that it will not pose any safety hazards for your new baby.
