I pulled the trigger on a dresser/changer and some bookshelves from Overstock.
and some darkly-stained mission style bookshelves (2 full height, 2 half). The half size is for the baby's room, the others are for my husband's books which are currently all in boxes on the floor of the guest room.
I just wanted to share because I've been stressing about the cost and putting it off for so long. I have tons of baby clothes and nowhere to put them - same with books. In fact...
is what it looks like (approximately) in the nursery right now. Yeah. Time to get that in order.
I have been sleeping soooo poorly and just feel like I have zero coping skills for anything right now. Rargh. Just trying not to be unpleasant to interact with is effortful at this stage!
I still want one, but DH is convinced we don't need one. Now I am thinking maybe we can find some sort of small dresser and use the top as a changing table since we kinda do need another dresser.
That's what we did. Found it on kijiji. Doesn't have the raised part on top, but that change pad screws into the back of the dresser. We wanted one exactly like this originally, but chickened out due to the price tag! I love yours though Everything is so much more affordable in the US it seems!
I was considering just clearing off my dresser and putting a changing pad on top of that. I really love furniture that is built for longevity i.e. grows with the child, and I'm simultaneously a furniture snob and tightwad, which makes things... interesting. I chose this one mostly because it was the most affordable new-furniture option that worked with the room and was built of solid wood (that I could find). I would rather it didn't have the rails on top, but I'm sure it will work fine for now and since we're planning on having more kids, it will get *plenty* of use as both a dresser and a changer - so yay.
