Changing Table

Submitted by velazquez3 on Mon, 06/09/2014 - 06:42

After building the Emerson console for our living room, and seeing how Ana modified the plans for a changing table, I decided to do the same. Although I eliminated one of the doors to make it fit our room a little better and also cut down on plywood costs, I'm VERY happy with how this turned out.

I also decided to use shaker style drawers and a shaker style cabinet door to give it a slightly more polished or modern look. Our baby is due in July and these drawers are already full of diapers and clothes!

Estimated Cost
$175
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Maple veneered plywood for the cabinet, and poplar for the drawers, door, and face frame
Finish Used
Kilz primer on the bare wood, followed by Valspar Ultimate paint in Ultra White, and finally protected with Minwax water based polyurethane to prevent the white from yellowing. Lots of sanding to smooth out the painted surfaces and get rid of any runs/brush strokes/lap marks.
Recommended Skill Level
Intermediate
