Baby's come with tons o' stuff and you're going to need somewhere to store it all. This does not mean you have to pay a lot though. Many great pieces of furniture can be found at thrift stores and consignment shops. What to grab a great piece of nursery furniture for less? Read on... First things first: When buying completely ignore looks. Sure if you hate a dresser design don't buy, it but issues like color, scratches, and hardware can all be fixed. Check out the furniture before you buy for loose parts, chipping paint (unless you're going to paint it), and be sure it's smooth with no rough edges or splinters. Some rough patches can be sanded out though so keep that in mind. Refinish: If you found the perfect bookcase but hate the color or wood grain take a look at this easy guide to refinishing furniture. Paint: Paint your furniture with eco-friendly and non-toxic paints. Brighten your furniture: One excellent way to make an old dresser look brand new is with cool new hardware like handles or knobs. You can find nice hardware at home and garden supply shops and some children's furniture stores. You can go with classic new knobs and handles in shades of silver or bronze or try more whimsy. Check out these great knobs from Kids' Knobs: 1076-yellowfl-f.jpg1090-orrobot-f.jpg1035-lavenderbf-f.jpg1001-soccer-f.jpg1011-blstar-f.jpg1037-elephant-f.JPG
