A changed changing table

If you follow this blog on Instagram, you might remember this sneak peek of the nursery my sister is putting together for their baby girl due this May.
The room is sooo sweet and I can't wait to share the whole thing.

But for now, I'm showing how she took the Ikea Tarva dresser and "hacked" it into a changing table for the nursery.

All it took was some paint, a change of hardware, and a changing table topper. 
Pretty simple but a huge transformation nonetheless!

In case you are wondering, the mirror above the changing table is CB2the changing pad cover is Land of Nod, the hardware is from The Hardware Hut, and the paint color is called "Etiquette" by Benjamin Moore.

To see another "hack" on the Ikea tarva dresser that I did a few months back, check out this post.

  1. Where did you get the changing table topper from?!

    1. Hi, she got it from! Pricey, but I'm sure you can do it without the topper and just secure the changing pad to the top.

  2. Hi! Did you use spray paint or regular for this? Any painting tips? It looks great!

    1. Hi, she used regular paint, not spray paint. First use a good primer (like Kilz) and then a couple coats of paint and lastly, some wax!


I appreciate all of your comments! If you have a question, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
