A Special Changing Table for a Special Baby

 
I've been getting a little flack for not posting enough .
That's OK with me .
That means people like to read what I write.
And maybe miss me a little bit :)
 
It's not that I haven't done projects.
I've been doing tons of them.
I just haven't taken the time to blog about them .
 
Well,
I have one I just have to share .
 
Over the weekend ,
Sarah , Emily and I hosted a baby shower for my Darling Niece, Spencer.
Early on in her pregnancy ,
she had asked me to be on the look out for a changing table.
This was before her mother ( my Sis ) became obsessed with buying every baby item
at every garage sale we went to.
 
But would let MY niece have a plain old ordinary changing table ?
That would be a big
 NO , I DON'T THINK SO !
Nope...
 
So I waited till I found the perfect table.
The right size.
The right shape.
Character.
 
 
And I found all that in this old sewing machine table.
It even had drawers for baby necessities.
 
I cleaned her up.
Scraped the loose varnish off the top.
Hubs cut a board to fit  where the sewing machine used to live,
( didn't want baby falling through the hole )
which I then upholstered.
 
TaDa !
 
I had a little issue with the drawer pulls.
As in , it didn't have any ...
and
new ones didn't fit the old holes .
What to do ?
hmmm...
IMPROVISE !
 
 
I found these little white porcelain knobs.
 
 
I thought they were perfect.
Very 'babyish".
Yes ?
 
Here is Spencer's perfectly imperfect changing table.
In her perfect nursery.
 
 
The nursery is full of repurposed and DIY .
Which makes me one very proud Auntie :)
