Hi All, I'm looking for a changing table for the babys room, the kind with drawers in it. I'd need it in a pine colour, to match the cot and the wardrobe (that I have eyt to buy) I can only find the ones in smyths and mothercare - they're great too, am gonna get one of these for downstairs. Also, any idea how much they cost? FIL is buying it for us.

Sorry I can't help Jeidi but I can tell you what we're doing? I got a regular chest of drawers that weren't too high and got one of the changing mats to put on top of it! H2b is going to fix the mat solid to the drawers so it can't slip off! We now have a lovely changing table with the drawers that we want and didn't cost the earth!

A friend owns a furniture company and I'll get the wardrobe off him but I could get the drawers aswell!!

I'm hoping that h2b will do a tidy job fixing the mat so that we can use it as a regular chest of drawers when we don't need changing mat anymore! There's a lovely wardrobe / locker and headboard to match it so when we move into the house I hope to get these to decorate baby's room! It also meant that we got exactly what we wanted! Anything I saw in the shops was very plastic or very expensive!
