Baby's First Gift

While preparing the nursery for our first born child, I decided that I could build a changing table to save some money. Not only was it less expensive, it is also sturdier and better looking that anything we found in the stores!

  • This is a beautiful design! The clothing storage baskets are really smart too. Is this your own design?

    • The baskets worked out perfectly! We don't have too much room in the space, and a dresser wouldn't fit. The baskets are perfect for all of his clothes and necessities. I can't take credit for the design, but the build seemed to be a little more labor intensive than I first anticipated. I learned how long it takes to sand down that much material! This project really got me into wanting to do more, and I've got plans on doing our own farmhouse table next!

  • Love the color combo! I know it feels great to be able to build furniture for your first born :)

    • Thanks! My wife loved picking out the colors of the wall and the table since she wasn't able to help in the actual build! Making this for my son had to be the most rewarding project I've completed!
