From Baby to Big Kid: Fun Changing Table Transformation

Over at The Salvaged Boutique, Karen tells us that one of her friends sent her a picture of a kids’ play kitchen made from an old entertainment center, telling her that she hoped to have something like it for her daughter someday.  So when Karen went trash pickin’ and found this broken changing table, she immediately thought of its potential to become a kitchen!


With some help from her husband, Karen lowered the changing surface so that it would be toddler height.  She painted the former changing table a sunny yellow, but used silver paint on the cupboard door so that it would look more like a fridge.  A ruffled curtain hides storage underneath the cute sink and stove that were installed.  I’m smitten!


You can get all the details on how this changing table became an adorable kitchen for imaginative play at The Salvaged Boutique.

Wood Farmhouse Vanity

Judi from The 1829 Farmhouse has been through a serious bathroom renovation in her 182-year-old home. The space needed a vanity that was fitting of its vintage farmhouse style, so Judi designed a “workbench” vanity to be built from the 300-year-old wood that had been pulled from the bathroom wall.

Wood from Walls

After some deliberation, Judi stained the top and painted and distressed the bottom of the vanity. The porcelain faucet handles make the perfect drawer pulls for the vintage style. Since this house has been a part of Judi’s husband’s family for years (and years and years!), it is really cool how they have been able to reuse some of the original construction in their renovations.
