If you are looking for a place in the nursery to break out of the standard mold and do something a little different why not start with the changing table? It’s easy to find the standard looking chunky changing table but maybe think outside of the box, literally? Since you can add a changing topper to any dresser, which will instantly convert it for changing duty the choices are much broader. So get funky and find an old antique or vintage dresser you can re-do. Or find a new piece at a non-nursery furniture store you can convert for the nursery.
I love a little glam in the nursery. Both the Hollywood Regency Changer from Petit Tresor and the Concerto Dresser from Z Gallerie embrace that style. I also love a great DIY re-do that gets the look for less. Anyone up for trying to re-create this amazing Savannah changing table by The New Traditionalists? An old dresser with good bones, cool new hardware and a can of hot pink lacquer paint and you’re in business. This dresser from my favorite “I found it on Craigslist” section of Sunset Magazine also inspires some DIY magic.
