So one thing that I've been doing A LOT lately is researching and looking for good deals on nursery furniture. The one place that I've been finding amazing deals is Wal-Mart. So what's the problem? The problem is that I like the deals but I also like the furniture to look nice! I keep checking Craig's List and Ebay but seem to keep striking out in those two areas. However, I keep thinking "What if?" Who knows if something huge might come up later right? Help me out here!
Ok...so here are some of the sets that we have picked out. Maybe you can give me guidance!This first set is SUPER CHEAP! $240 with free shipping! It's a great 3 piece set and even though it may not be the best quality, it has received some awesome reviews! "So what's the problem?" you ask. The bed is not convertible. Is it necessary to have a convertible bed? I get mixed answers and I have mixed feelings about it. That's the only problem we are finding. If it were convertible, this set would be a no-brainer for us!Here is the second set we've been looking at. Also VERY CHEAP! This set is $250 with free shipping! It is also a 3 piece set that has received fabulous reviews. I can't decide if I like this bed more than the other style BUT, this bed is convertible. The problem we are facing with this set is that the dresser is dinky. Is that a big deal now? Probably not. Will it be in the future when our child gets bigger? Possibly.Now onto our third option. Here is a two piece set that is GORGEOUS! It's a very reliable brand (Storkcraft) and is very well made. I love that the dresser can be used as a changing table but I have decided that I want a separate changing table since we are going to be cloth diapering and need all the storage we can get. Here lies the problem, this set is very expensive and getting the matching changing table would just be an additional cost! This set costs $336 and the matching table costs $118.
So what would you do? I know it's still early but we were kind of hoping to get this part of the nursery done before we found out the gender (on the 31st). So should we wait a little bit longer or should we go ahead and make a decision? Any advice that you could give would be great!
Oh, as a little side note, I should mention that my parents have offered to help us buy the furniture but that doesn't mean I really want to spend tons of money.
