We got ours a while ago and assembled it today. They look great, you can definitely see some slight imperfections in the finish but they are no big deal (to me). There's no doubt that they are great value and so far, we are very pleased.

I was wondering if anyone had problems getting the changing table doors to close? Ours do close but you have to close both precisely at the same time which will be a pain when the LO gets here. (What I'm really hoping is that someone has a fix for this.)

I do realize this thread is more or less dead, but thought I'd check.

Susietea: How did you get the pictures to stick to the ribbon? I like what you did.

I also have alphabet cards and was planning on framing them 5 or 6 at a time in long frames and staggering them horizontally along the walls -- that's what we did last time, at any rate.

It's a lovely room, whatever the budget. The prints and the palette really make it work. And I do love those cribs. I sort of wonder if you'll miss having a rocking chair in there, but that's really your call. (And easily remedied.)

Thank you Vanessa and Carla and Oh Dee Doh! I just bought the crib and changing station for $312.93. At those prices, I'll take my chances. I've always loved the look of the Netto cribs but was planning on getting a Gulliver.

I do a generic season's greetings card for that reason. But my son has been known to wear a Santa hat in the photo.

Cute card! If you think someone might be offended, just send them a separate card.

I saw a similar chair for a girl at Babies R Us yesterday. Very cute, despite the source. It looked a bit like the Monte Cubino but I didn't look to see if it had removable slipcovers -- probably not. It was $70. I say for a girl because they only had it in pink.

Do kids actually use these kinds of chairs? I never got one for my son because I just assumed it would gather dust.

To each his/her own. I can't imagine changing a baby on the floor -- seems horribly uncomfortable to me. But certainly lots of people find that's a good way to go.

I had a cheapo changing table last time around and I used the heck out of it. Once my boy was potty-trained we sold it on Craiglist.

In our new house, I think we are going to change the baby on the bathroom counter. You don't necessarily need an expensive piece of furniture, you just need a flat surface and a place to store things. (Preferably not in a drawer, but in something open that you can grab with one hand.) The bog-standard changing table really is a pretty good design, in my opinion. They just leave a little (OK, a lot) to be desired on the aesthetic front.

I have those cards -- got them for my son, who is now 5. I wouldn't worry matching them to bedding, they could really pretty much go with anything. Pick out bedding that you like and then get a backing mat for your frame that marries the two.

Funny that someone mentioned the PBKids gingham bedding. That's actually what I had for my son. In blue.

I'll use the cards again for my Wee Tot, when s/he gets here. Thanks to the PP who linked to the -- I didn't know that site and they've got some cute sheets.

I love this room in general, but not so much for the color specifically.

I think color correcting the first photo would do you a world of good in this contest. I don't know if you get to resubmit, but that's dragging your results way down.

Also, the not-playing-by-themselves thing is very typical of three.

I really like these ones from Land of Nod:

I had something similar (but not quite as cute) made for a lot less by a local bookcase maker.

All those cute baskets you see stacked up picture-perfect in magazines? We were using a system like that before. My messy boy would upend every basket several times a day, driving me utterly nutty in the process. For us, this is better because a) he can't dump them out and b) he is more willing to put toys away if he can still see them.

The colors in the room are lovely but we need to see more of the room to put it in the running.

This is definitely one of the top contenders. Your photography really takes it away. So many of the others -- the rooms are nice enough, but the photos don't do them justice.
