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!
