Thursday June 18, 2009

Eco-friendly baby products and nursery furniture are incredibly popular today, but many times they come with a high price tag. If you'd like to create an eco-friendly nursery for your baby but don't have a big budget, take a look at the Graco Dakota Classic crib. This dark-finish crib has classic lines and is made of sustainable woods, which are certified to Forest Stewardship Council standards by the Rainforest Alliance SmartWood Program. The crib's finish is water-based, and the whole thing is packaged in recycled or recyclable materials.

There are no moving sides on the Graco Dakota Classic crib, which is in line with current crib safety trends. It has three mattress support positions, caster wheels and it converts to a toddler bed, day bed and full-size headboard. It's available for about $200 on Walmart.com. A matching, eco-friendly Dakota changing table is available for about $130.

Two tones can be twice as nice, as evidenced by a wave of new products hitting the kids market that feature two-toned finishes. Whether marrying wood tones with cream, black or other complementing woods, or making the leap into bolder color combinations, this hot trend packs double the punch.

LaJobi's Francais collection looks like it was just pulled out of grandma's attic. The case pieces are finished in a distressed antique cream with a Charleston cherry top, with acrylic knobs. Double dresser, $800, 609-409-2495
