Changing Table

Submitted by bd on Sat, 04/19/2014 - 15:00

This was actually the second changing table I made based off this set of plans. The first one was a painted pine piece that went to the church nursery. I made the shelves deeper and the wider to accommodate the changing pad and have extra room for a wipe warmer and a lamp.

Neither of the big box stores had oak trim (I guess it's a regional thing?), so I had to spend some extra money on a nice piece of trim from a custom shop. I had quite a bit of oak plywood left over from a previous project, so the cost of the project all evened out in the end (kind of).

I also didn't make the top "removable." I figured if I want a book shelf in the future, I'll make a bookshelf instead of having an old changing table with holes on the top from screws.

Just like all of my projects, there a few blemishes, but all in all I was pretty pleased with the way this one turned out. Thanks for the plans, Ana!
