10 Charming Changing Table Hacks

When you discover that there is a new little bundle of joy on the way, there are so many things to stress over, one of them being the nursery. You have to choose the theme and a crib and which rocking chair is the most comfortable to sleep in. With all of those decisions, you don’t need one more thing to worry about, like the changing table. You need to basics of a flat space with storage and that’s about it. But it would help if it’s a little stylish, right? Check out these 10 charming changing table hacks that will make outfitting your changing table a breeze.

old dresser

Your first decision is on the changing table piece itself. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be that hard. A changing table dresser can be a thrifty solution to the problem. Just use a little paint to spruce up a dresser you already have and you’re on your way. (via Apartment Therapy)

gorgeous dresser

If you adore the changing table dresser idea but don’t have a dresser that you like for the purpose, feel free to splurge on a beautiful new one! Not only will it serve as a changing table while baby is small, but they can continue to use it for storage as they grow older. (via Inspired By This)

IKEA hack

Whenever there is a furniture problem to be solved, I always go to IKEA hacks for the answer. While the IKEA changing tables are lovely and simple, you can get better storage out of simply using a KALLAX unit instead. All those cubbies are perfect for giving toys and books and shoes a place to rest. (via Made By Girl)

old tv cabinet

Here’s an interesting changing table hack. Use an old armoire or even a outdated TV cabinet painted white for your changing space. Think about it! A flat space for a changing pad plus shelves underneath for storage, what could be more perfect? (via Poppinette)

fold out

Are you really thinking you don’t have the space for an actually piece of furniture changing table? Opt for a fold out one instead. Then when you’re done, fold away at no extra cost of space. It’s a great solution for small apartments or closet nurseries. (via Decor Pad)

pegboard storage

When there are so many baby necessities, good storage is a necessity as well. Hanging a pegboard above your changing table is the perfect way to store everything you need for changing time as well as decorative prints or the cutest romper that they only wore once. (via Project Nursery)

fruit basket storage

A fruit basket turned changing table storage is another great option for holding all those changing table necessities. Whether you’re going with rustic or industrial or shabby chic, a metal tier like the one above will fit all your themes. (via Life In Bridgetown)

hooks on the side

This idea is genius. Whether it’s an actual changing table, a dresser or even an IKEA hack, you have a side to use as storage space! Install some hooks where you can hang a spare set of clothes or a child’s lovey while you change them. (via Project Nursery)

pretty hand sanitizer

Every changing table has a bottle of hand sanitizer. So why not make that bottle a pretty one? Next time you’re in Target, pick up a pretty soap pump dispenser where you can keep the stuff and get rid of the ugly blue bottle. That’s styling to the max. (via Kelly Hicks)

changing table mirror

I just had to include this because it’s a great idea! If you’ve ever changing a baby’s diaper, you know that they get fidgety as they get older. While a toy may help, it may also just get in your way. One solution is to hang a mirror at the back of your changing table so baby can smile and talk to himself while you finish your business. Brilliant, right? (via Project Nursery)
