Growing up, one of my favorite memories was helping my dad work on the houses he was renovating.
I loved going to job sites with him and finding projects to work on.
When I found out that I was pregnant, I knew that I wanted to redo an old dresser that was my Mamaw’s and make it into a changing table for the nursery.
I also thought it would be the perfect project to work on with my dad for some father-daughter bonding time!
We started by sanding down the dresser to the bare wood, and then we sawed off the bottom portion of the dresser to give it a cleaner, more modern look.
After sanding the dresser down, we put on one coat of stain and one coat of polyurethane.
I knew that I wanted to add tapered legs, which I ordered off of Amazon.com.
The small knobs were ordered from cb2 and the handles from Houzz.com.
Being pregnant, I needed to be careful of saw dust and fumes, so I picked up a heavy duty filtration mask at my local hardware store.
I couldn’t be happier with how the dresser/changing table turned out, and it was so much fun being back in the workshop with my dad.
This furniture piece is something that my Little Lady will be able to use forever, and she will have a little piece of her grandpa and me.
