A lot of the stuff we have for our nursery is second hand but we still chose it.
We picked up a beautiful Boori cot and inner spring mattress off a friend for $75 a couple of years back. DH's cousin is giving us her boori change table, which suits us because we couldn't be bothered actually buying one so the only way we would have one would be if someone gave it to us. The we have 2 slimline bookcases and a low open cabinetty thing that used to be in the lounge room but we have painted them up to go in the nursery.
The new things we will get are a high wingback chair for the corner, new pram, new car seat, new high chair and a playpen (being used so that bub can get to know our 2 boofhead dogs without them necessarily being able to bowl them over.
We have declined the offer of some things like clothes and prams and things because we have waited so long to have this moment that we really want to be able to choose what we would like. Thankfully everyone has been really understanding of that.
It's good fun when you get to choose things yourself regardless of where it came from. My partners parents are buying the secondhand stuff especially for us before even asking if we want it or need off people they don't know.
Them lol soft plastic chairs? Yeah they are awesome!!!!! They are even good for tiny ones to sit because it supports their back well
