I agree with the bar cart in front. That way there's no clutter on top, and the wall is a backdrop for what's on the cart.

I completely agree, especially when it comes to decorating nurseries. When my daughter gets older, if she wants butterflies and princesses, so be it. But I'M the one who has to look at the nursery, and I just couldn't stomach the pastels (which apparently are the only appropriate colors for baby girls.) I made my own curtains, bed skirts, and even the rug out of crocheted t-shirt strips. And, except for the crib, all of the furniture was from "grown-up" sections of stores. Instead of a themey babyish room, she's got a room she can really grow into.

We bought a house in June, and I've just been getting to some of the last boxes that have been tucked in corners. I opened one yesterday, and it was FULL of tech boxes, neatly packed by my husband, of course. We didn't even use them to move the items! He just can't throw them away. I finally got all of the manuals out of them and convinced my husband to recycle them all. What a waste of space! Especially since we know we'll be living here a while.

I got mine at Lowes. I think the unit was $50, plus casters which may have been $20. It was very easy to put together. I didn't press each shelf all the way down until I was sure I had them laid out the way I wanted them. Although I saw Lowes had a $10 "assembly fee" if you weren't inclined to put them together yourself. :) I work with real metro shelving at work and see no difference in quality between Lowes' and the real stuff.
