Vintage Diaper-Changing Station

Changing Table

  And yet another example of why I love to decorate with junk…..

Little Brother is actually potty trained now, but he still wears a diaper for sleeping purposes.  When we no longer need the changing pad, I’ll probably use the top of the sideboard as a bookshelf or display space.

I love the way this turned out!  

  • The awesome, antique sideboard came from that same, generous couple I mentioned in this post: Why I Decorate With Junk.  It was FREE.
  • The appliqued cloth diaper was a baby gift from a friend.  I mounted it in an oak frame from Hobby Lobby.  (I can’t remember the price of the frame, but I’m sure I bought it at 40% off with a sale or coupon and spent no more than $20).
  • The red Lil’ Buckaroo sign came from the awesome, local Goodwill store back in Texas.  I think it was $1.50.
  • The wooden knob (from which the Buckaroo sign hangs) was a random treasure from my husband’s shop out back.  (And if you’ve ever wondered how to attach a knob to the wall, stay tuned for that post, coming up…).
  • The fabulous, vintage first aid kit was a prize find at a local antique shop.  It was exactly what I needed to complete the space!  And it’s super-functional, to boot!  I think I paid $25 for it, which was a bit of a splurge.
  • We use canvas bins to store clothing inside the sideboard, sort of like drawers.  We also keep a trashcan on one of the bottom shelves.  The bins were baby gifts; the basket-turned-trashcan came from a local thrift shop for a few dollars.  [Update: see pictures below for an inside view.]
  • Oh, and the changing pad and cover were baby gifts, too.
  • The red, metal caddy and the lined baby-wipes-basket were also thrift store finds, and of course I can’t remember their prices.  Not more than a few dollars total.

Grand total:  approx. $35–$50 (depending on the prices of the frame and thrift store items)

This is SO PERFECT for storing essential oils! Out of reach of Little Brother, and with a handy pull-down surface which functions like a little shelf during oil-dispensing.
