I know that everyone on these boards loves to recommend the Hemnes dresser, and I'm not going to lie I love it (I have the 8 drawer dresser and 3 drawer chest in my master bedroom). I'm 5'2" and it is an incredibly tall dresser. I think I would be uncomfortable changing my 17 month old on there. Just my honest opinion.
For DD I got her entire bedroom set from Pottery Barn Kids, but this time around my budget isn't as generous so I'm going to be getting the Malm dresser from Ikea which is about 8 inches shorter than the Hemnes. When I first saw it I wasn't too crazy about it because it is very plain but I got some inspiration from Pinterest and I'm doing an "Ikea Hack" to jazz it up and make it look prettier. I'm actually really excited about it. The best part about it is the price! Even with the wood detailing I'm adding to it it is still going to cost much less than any other dresser I've seen out there.
