    Hi ladies :flower:

    We have our cot all set up in the nursery and it's a white sleigh style.

    We were going to get the matching changing table for it but I've decided we need drawers more than two shelves under it.

    So... get a dresser changer I hear you say! Well the only one I can find that I like is the M&P Coastline dresser changer, which is a bit out of our price range at £260.

    So I thought about getting just a chest of drawers, I like some of the ones in Argos, but my issue is that the drawers aren't too deep and the bottoms of ours in our room have fallen through and they're only 6 months old...
    Here's one...

    So my next solution is to use a chest of drawers that we have in our living room which are older than me, made of solid wood and are lovely and deep. I'd give them a new lick of paint and some new knobs to freshen it up and get a new tall bookcase to store the DVDs from the drawers in the living room (and the rest of our books that we don't have room for).
    Dont have a pic of the drawers right now...

    But these the bookcases we'd get (one of them not both but haven't decided)

    £39.99

    https://www.argos.co.uk/wcsstore/argos/images/6109613A66UC291394M.jpg
    £59.99


    I really have no idea what to go for! The last solution would really help our budget and our storage needs both in the nursery and the living room...

    Aaaah choices! :dohh:

    I have the second bookshelf from Argos and the drawers bottoms have fallen through. The shelves are nice and sturdy so you may be better with te first.

    have a look at changing tables on kiddicare.com. We got a full M&P bedroom set for DS (5 years ago mind you) with huge wardrobe, changing table with 3 drawers and a little cupboard for nappies etc, and a cot bed for £450. And its still immaculate, none of the drawers have fallen out like the crappy mdf base ones like you get in argos. Worth spending a few extra quid as they last forever AND if you look after it you'll get resale on it too x

    I don't like the kiddicare ones :(

    I'm so fussy it's unreal :(

    We just don't have the money for a good dresser changer :(

    May go with the second bookshelf then and use my old drawers (they were passed on to me from my mum so would be nice)

    Just need to persuade OH, he's not sure!
