    Those who have bought their nursery furniture, just wondering where you all bought it from and a rough cost. I have been looking today and all the nice stuff seems soo expensive

    We got ours from John Lewis hun, but only because we'd saved the vouchers we were given as wedding presents - so I'm not much help to you, sorry. But mothercare online do have a sale on at the moment, www.mothercare.co.uk, then click on offers. Perhaps you'll get a bargain there? I've just gotten all the cot bedding I'd been wanting with 20% off. Good luck xx

    Edit: Ours cost £215 for the cot and £137 for the mattress (we picked the most expensive mattress though), which inlaws kindly paid for, then it was £215 for the chest of drawers and £318 for the wardrobe. That's all we've gone for. We did get a glider chair off of ebay which was in excellent condition for £60, and I got a little table in ikea for £15 so I could have a lamp, and use it for drinks etc. when breastfeeding.

    i have spent £12 ON A SWINGING CRIB AND NOTHING ON AN OLD UNIT i TRANSFORMED INTO A BAY CHANGING UNIT. (oops caps soz)
    theres no room for a wardrobe so baby clothes are hanging up with mine at the mo.
    I wanna get something like a wall mountable unti and put a pole in there so its like a mini wardrobe on the wall. That would save loadsa money and space.

    I'm not buying any because its so bloody expensive! I'm just buying a cheap(ish) canvas wardrobe, this: http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/catalogId/1500001501/partNumber/8759195.htm and nothing else, im also buying the cheapest cot Argos have, at £50 something. I dont have a lot to spend on furniture, and though its nice to look at i'd like to spend my money on things my princess will need more :) x

    My husband is building everything. He's outside working on a cradle as I type this. He's also going to make the crib and dresser. I'll be making the bedding for the crib and cradle, and the curtains for the nursery. Hopefully I don't screw it up. :blush: I have a rocker that I guess counts as nursery furniture, but it was given to me by a friend of ours.

    So, in short, we're not buying any furniture. Unless you count trips to Lowe's for lumber.

    We bought our crib in Babies R Us.
    Luckily we have a walk-in closet in the babies room so wont need to spend extra money on a wardrobe/dresser etc..
