I knew that I didn't want the traditional changing table nor did I want things to really match perfectly together in his room. At first, I had a french provincial style in my head, but once we found out it was a boy, I felt it was just way too girly. We have a great thrift store by our home, with amazing furniture. Earlier on in my pregnancy my mom and I stopped there while Mr. B went to the gym. Luckily, Mr. B and his truck were down the road from the thrift store when we found this gem. There was even a sale going on and the final price was $40.00 ! Can you believe it? This thing is solid.
Then we have the babe's bookshelf. This bookshelf has been in my family for as long as I can remember and has been many, many different colors. When it was left to us after we bought our home, I painted it what you see here from all yellow. Not bad, but not going to match for our babe's room.
With a little paint (low VOC of course) we have this ! Now I was not as much as a perfectionist with this as my father in law was with the dresser, but I am okay with that, I truly do love it.
