baby changing table converted to laundry station

I had this old and ugly baby changing table that I purchased for $10 at a flea market. Well I saw this awesome laundry room storage idea a while back at http://mattjessicapope.blogspot.com/2011/04/laundry-room-makeover.html  and at http://ana-white.com/2011/01/saushas-washerdryer-pedestals.html
 So I did what I do best. I took the shelf I already had and modified it to be a laundry room sorting station. It was really easy. I took the 2 bottom shelves off and moved the trim piece up. The trick here is to use a flat black paint after a white primer. Then sand and distress, then clear coat spray.I wanted to be able to change the labels if I ever decided to move the piece to another room so I chalkboard painted to one of the larger trim pieces that came off the original shelf. I already had the tall skinny sorting baskets so it worked perfect!

And don't worry~! I am using the leftover shelving pieces on some other projects, I am not letting it go to waste!

HERE IS THE BEFORE:
AND AFTER:

 DISTRESSING IS FUN!

  1. wow what a great idea! I have an old changing table I need to do something with so this is perfect.

    also, thanks for coming over to the dragons fairy tail. my thoughts on making the pudding cups more teen would be maybe adding some glitter or bling on the flowers, or you could do a mint leaf just coming out of cup so it looks more natural. last thought: you could do the mud cups in plastic champaigne glasses. that would jazz it up. hope that helps!
