Upcycle: Baby Changing Table to Desk

DIY 04.02.15
I picked up this incomplete baby changing table from atrash pile. If you'll notice, there are only 2 support beams, and two shelf pieces,therefore I couldn't just reconstruct this as a baby changing table. I love challenges like this!

I tossed around a few ideas: a tree swing, a bench and a desk.

I went with the desk because I don't have a good tree swing worthy branch and I don't need another bench.

What do you have in your house that could be converted into something more useful or needed in your life?

Time: 2 Hours Difficulty: Moderate

    This looks great. I'll have to remember this one. I just gave up my home office, but eventually I might be able to have one again - and I could use the changing table my babies used.

    Oh I love this! If you need one you could add a cork board by adhering sheet cork to the back panels. You'd have to use straight pins or the itty bitty sequin pins but it could work.
