If you decide to do a little dumpster diving to save some cash — you want to be careful about which vintage pieces you choose for your child’s room. You don’t want to get anything with old, chipping and potentially lead-based paint. You also want to make sure you stay away from furniture with out of date latches and hardware- like chests and cribs. You can check www.cpsc.gov for recalled items, too. But don’t be afraid to salvage old pieces – you’ll save money and the planet.
