Weekend Project...DIY changing table makeover

My upcylced & repurporsed and DIY boards on pinterest have inspired a weekend project! We have been hunting for a cheap spin on a changing table. One because we don’t really think we will change the baby on the table that much and two because we know this will not be a piece the baby can grow with since we’ll be eventually moving her to a bigger room.

We first looked to IKEA, but even some of their dressers were more than what we were willing to pay. We then went to craigslist and began daily searches in the free ads. There are so many goodies for free, but beware there are also a lot of odd posts in the free section as well!

We ended up landing this dresser for $35. This was a pretty cheap deal. I plan to sand, primer, paint and also spice it up.  I’ve found some great inspiration from Young House Love, Before Meets After, and The Etsy Blog. Since we’re dealing with a very small space and our crib is white, I will probably paint the dresser white, change the knobs and then do something fun on the two top doors. Stay tuned for the big reveal! 

Ps. I still owe you a reveal of our factory cart table too! So many projects and so little time. Hoping for many more pretty weekends before the baby arrives so we can get everything done.
