Changing table REHAB

So for those of you that aren't aware, I have a very special Father In Law who loves treasure hunting!  The man has a good eye and loves to supply me with all sorts of goodies to paint! But this... baby changing table?  Yes, it is in great shape... but... well I need to think about this.  So this changing table that someone threw out in their garbage sat with me in my studio for a couple of weeks and then it hit me...











Sorry for the stock photo, but when inspiration hit I didn't stop for a picture... First the security rails on top came down, some castors I had went on the bottom... and yes I was very proud of attaching those by myself.  Of course it took half of an evening for me but they are on pretty securely!
A couple of layers of paint, some adorable Coastal Star(fish)s painted on, some light distressing...





 And we have a rolling server!  Or if you are creative like my client...



A Coastal organizer!  Her little precious can easily tote around her toys in style!  Another item saved from the landfill and enjoying a second life!  Love it!
