Using the Old Changing Table

I read the article Amanda wrote on our main site about this topic (find the article here:
http://www.thefamilycorner.com/homeg...desrep/1.shtml )
and I've been thinking about taking our toddler's changing table out of his room.

He's too tall for it anyway and his feet hang over the side and I'm afraid he will start climbing up it. It is certainly not strong enough to support a climbing toddler!

I'm HOPING to be able to get it into his closet and use it as shelving for "next size up" clothing that doesn't need to be hung (sweat pants, etc). I might have to remove the top shelf to give the hanging clothes enough room to hang down but I think it could be done....IF I can get the thing in the door.

DH told me to go ahead. I think he's given up long ago on the concept that he can stop me from moving furniture around

This would also give my little guy more "playing room" in his very small room.

I like your idea!

I never used a changing table with either of my kids but my son sure could use some more shelves in his closet. I think HGTV had some other uses for changing table too.


Dont you love looking around the rest of the site at FamilyCorner.com? I think that we often forget that the is a lot of information on tons of subjects right here and we go looking elsewhere before even looking here. Thanks for the reminder!!

Well, it was a good idea at the time....
but the closet is not deep enough for me to get the table in!
I had the whole thing planned out, and DD helped me by emptying and dusting the table for me while I moved other stuff.

I guess I'll either have to take the thing apart, or clean up my basement some more and put it down there. I can use it for the "laundry room" purpose suggested in the article

Of course I will be using mine again shortly, but in the meantime I had it in ds room where I put toys on it, luckily he never tried to climb it! I have to admit though that ds room good size so there was defintly enough room, the top shelf was awesome for his collection of stuffed animals. (I hope no one buys new baby a single stuffed animal) lol

Changing table is OUT of Luke's bedroom

My baby is growing up

He's still in diapers but he's too big for the table. So it's out of there. I'm going to put it in the basement (laundry room) as soon as I make a little space for it. TODAY. Because right now it's blocking the door to my bedroom, which I did on purpose, because if I put it someplace where it wouldn't be in the way, I'd leave it there to gather clutter.

I almost didn't register for one as none of my friend have used theirs for changing but my mom talked me into it. It matches the bedroom suite which is a 5 in 1 crib set so it will grown with my soon to be daughter. It is all cherry wood and beautiful. The changing table is made to convert like the bed into a shelf. Perfect for a small TV on top and books, toys etc on bottom shelves.

If it's wooden or wicker, you could use it to store linens, Sewing supplies, craft supplies, Games for games systems, or in a bathroom for storage.

You could use it for extra storage for dishes in your dining room, or on your patio durning the summer.
