As I set out to furnish my own nursery, I find myself scouring Share Space in search of ideas and inspiration. So many of my friends who have had babies that are now toddlers and school age children have lamented about the money spent to put together a nursery for furniture that their little one only needed for a short time. That is why I was determined that I would create a nursery that could grow with my baby with furniture that he will be able to use for a long time. That’s why I was so intrigued when I came across this DIY idea from Julie.
Julie has created this ingenious changing table from BILLY bookcases. By taking advantage of BILLY’s customizable features, she was able to construct the changing station from different sized bookcase and add some doors for a more finished look. She has plenty of storage and can keep diapers, wipes, lotion and onesies handy and the look blends seamlessly with the rest of the nursery. The best thing? When her baby is older, she will have perfect storage for toys, books and games that has a perfectly “big kid” look. This changing station is a great investment and these furniture pieces can stay in the room until college.
Here’s how you can get the look:From left to right:
- TJUSIG hanger for door/wall
- KUSINER boxes (set of 3)
- KUSINER storage box
- 2 BILLY tall bookcases
- 1 BILLY short bookcase
- 2 BILLY OLSBO doors
- SKOTSAM changing pad
- SKOTSAM changing pad cover
