Changing Table Facelift


This is our third child, and we have a LARGE age gap from our other kids, so we basically had to start all over again buying baby gear. I got a crib for free on ksl.com. I don't love it, but didn't want to spend $300 for one I like, so I had to figure out a way to make all the furniture work together. I got this changing table at the DI (thrift store) for $45. Actually, my bff DL found it for me, and I bought it. The color doesn't match the crib, and the thought of refinishing a crib made this pregnant girl T-I-R-E-D! So, I decided to paint it. I am happy with the way it turned out.



Before


After

All I did was clean it, do a small amount of sanding, prime it, and spray paint it. It was super easy. I replaced the wood knobs with ceramic knobs from Hobby Lobby. Easy-Peasy!

Have a Happy and Creative Day!

I'm TOTALLY inspired now! I hated my changing table since the day I bought it (bought it used) now with baby #2 being 8 months old...I'm going to paint it! Never dawned on me to do it before. Thanks

Thanks for the nice comments everybody!

I used Painter's touch by Rustoleum 2X, but threw the can away before I recorded the color. Next time I go to Home Depot, I will look, and get back to you :) Sorry!
