I am super excited that my grandson nursery is finally done. My daughter was looking for a non- traditional nursery that had all the comforts needed for the baby.One of the many features of the nursery was the nursery changing table. I transformed an old dresser into a stylish changing table.
Some of the features and the functionality of the baby’s changing table.
We added a super thick baby pad for changing the baby. The dresser has lots of drawers for storage of baby items such as diapers and clothes. The top of the dresser is wide enough for the changing pad providing lots of room. The traditional changing table height must be comfortable enough for the mother to change the baby. This dresser was perfect for this conversion.
Here is what you need to transform dresser into a stylish changing table.
- Wide dresser
- Lots of drawers for babies clothing & diapers
- Proper height of top of dresser for changing.
- Changing pad
New Exterior Finish
- Semi gloss paint
- Painting brushes
- The top of this dresser was yellowing and the paint was flaking off so it needed to be stripped.
- Once stripped and sanded it was ready for priming. I painted the entire dresser with the primer.
- Sanded one more time.
- Then for final coat I used an off white semi gloss paint by Sherwin Williams that I had left over from another project.
My daughter did such a great job in picking out the color and the non traditional nursery decor pieces. Her son Theo will be able to grown into this without her having to re-paint or change to much of the room. I love the reclaimed shelving which displays simple items that are perfect for a baby boy. Her use of baskets is a great idea to keep things organzed. Here is another dresser diy, this one was the first time I painted a pieces of furniture.
