SMB Update and a “New” Changing Table

August 23, 2010

Check out how much BIGGER he is!!


Head on over to Scottsdale Moms Blog today to see my post on sleeping comfortably during pregnancy!


One more update is our progress on the changing table for the nursery.

We bought this antique dresser at Lizabel’s Treasures:


Not bad looking, but not quite polished either. So, here’s what we did…

  1. Gave it a good dusting and polishing.
  2. Replaced all of the hardware with Home Depot finds (2 Knobs and 4 handles).
  3. Deodorized the drawers with cedar and baking soda for 1 week (It smelled like grandma’s perfume and mothballs…FYI, not a good smell!).
  4. Lined the drawers with black faux leather contact paper from Home Depot.
  5. Constructed a basic changing table top using our best woodshop skills, plywood, 1 x 4’s, moulding, white paint, and adhesive cork.
  6. The one thing left to do is make the changing pad, but we don’t have a fabric yet…


Here it is!
