Buffet to Changing Table Makeover

I have a furniture makeover for you today! And it's about bloody time, because it's for my grandnugget, Reese, and she's already seven months old.

Holy poop-filled diapers. How did that happen so quickly?

Naturally, I had to find the finest piece of furniture for her.

Yes, only the best for my family.

You see, we specialize in furniture that gets drunk and passes out face-down in an alley, can't find its way home, and eventually ends up at our place.

In the end, I think it turned out pretty sweet! It's amazing what a little paint, stain, and fabric can do for a piece of furniture.

We debated on whether to add a safety barrier around the top of the buffet in order to keep Reese from rolling off. In the end, we decided that wasn't our responsibility, so we just went with a curved foam topper instead.

Aren't we marvelous grandparents?

A little light reading material always comes in handy for potty duty. A few of my Dr. Seuss faves are ready and waiting.

Of course, having an actual baby up there might help too. Reese didn't bother to drop in for the photo shoot. She probably will appreciate the fact I didn't show her little poopy baby butt anyway.
