Crib Changing Tray



With a baby on the way, limited space, and a lack of interest in pre-fab particle board, I came up with this changing tray based on a considerably more expensive one commercially available. It rests on the rails of the crib with felted tracks to keep it from turning or shifting, and is held down with removable webbing straps. It's constructed with 3/4" sandeply, stained, and finished with boiled linseed oil. The pad and cover were purchased online and fit perfectly. Note about boiled linseed oil: some versions of this product include drying agents to make it dry in a third of the time as pure linseed oil. The Kleen Strip brand's MSDS shows no such agent, but it is still best to let items for children off-gas for a few days before putting it in their room. Also, if it's something a baby might chew on, avoid it altogether and try coconut oil instead, as there are no chemicals and it won't go rancid like certain other oils.
