Painted Changing Table

Share this post

A changing table, it’s a piece that can really only be used for a couple of years at most.  With my first I went with a long dresser right away and put a changing pad on top of it.  Now out of diapers, I didn’t have to buy another piece of furniture for her big girl room.

For Baby Girl I knew I wanted to paint something and happened upon a mostly solid hardwood changing table with baskets for a price I couldn’t pass up.  Sold, this baby is getting a changing table.

A changing table can function well with the right storage options underneath, and in our case a big walk in closet in the room.

Once Baby Girl’s room was painted I decided this table needed to be coral to match the accent color in the room.  I simply sanded it and applied a couple of coats of the wall paint (Behr Cool Melon 170B-4).

(note: After I sanded and prepped it my Dad actually did the painting, it was Christmas and I was a little overwhelmed. Didn’t really have to ask either, thanks Dad!)

To organize this piece I spray painted the 2 large wicker baskets white.  One is filled with diaper essentials and slides out for easy access.  The other with socks tights leg warmers etc.

The bottom shelf has 4 stackable baskets with onesies and sleepers.  These are the essentials early on, the rest of the cute stuff is in the closet.  Having these items at hand will get me through night changes and sleep deprived mornings.
