Upcycle: Baby Changing Table to Desk

2 Hours
Medium

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?

    Did you have do something to make it shorter? I am trying to think how high a changing table is. I love the idea. You did a wonderful job.

    I love this idea! I was also thinking that even though the height of a changing table is a bit higher than a regular desk, there are so many pub height bar stools that can even have the legs cut to fit. I have trouble with my knees, so a higher desk/chair combo is awesome.
