Dressers - nursery furniture

did anyone buy their dresser somewhere else besides a baby store? I just can't see myself spending $500-$600 on just a dresser alone.

Where did you find your dresser and what kind of deals has everyone found?

    I design it and had it made, it's still not finished but here it is:
  • You can go to target or amazon
  • We are using a dresser that is currently in our garage from my gmas house. But previously we purchased the dressed that matched our crib from walmart. I wouldn't suggest it. The drawers drive me crazy because they only open half way and then stop. So annoying. I can't even see what's in the back of the drawer!
  • Refinished one I found on craigslist

    Ikea! We have the same dresser as pictured above (without the added flair, awesome job- @keniialise !). It is the 8-drawer Hemnes and comes in multiple finishes/colors for $230. We LOVE it!

  • A resale store! Then sanded it and painted it white to have it match the rest of the furniture and replaced the handles...total cost was less than $100
  • Mine was super ugly but free from a friend so I painted it.
  • IKEA Hemnes 8-drawer dresser... Also doubles as a changing table!

    We got ours at a furniture store, it was Sauder brand and was the same Espresso color as the crib we got. We paid like $150 and it has held up great after 3 years. We bought new stuff for DD and will be re-using for this little one. Can't believe how much they charge because it's a "nursery" dresser.
  • $50 one from Kmart

  • Target! Soooo cute about $250
  • I got my crib and dresser online from Target. The dresser was $300. It's adorable. The only thing I don't love is that the drawers are tiny. I kind of wish I would have bought a "regular" sized dresser.

  • IKEA!! The place where dreams come true :D

  • We got a delta kids dresser online from target. It was 240 and we got a $20 gift card with it because of a special. It was easy to put together. One of the drawer fronts was scratched but we just called and a replacement part came in a week later.
  • Thanks everyone! The Hemmnes would definitely be a good buy (we saw it a few weeks ago at IKEA and they have a great sale right now) but our crib is cherry colored and that dresser doesn't come in that color :( I think we'll try looking at Amazon and Target. We haven't had any luck with Craigslist.
  • I have a crib and dresser/change table combo, got it off amazon for 350$ it delivered in 2 days!! Awesome find, also we made a custom organizer which all cost under 100$ with 3 bars to hang clothes, and huge floor to ceiling cupboard and a 9 cube organizer! Turned out great!!
