Antique Changing Table

It's the last week of the baby blog party and this week Elisa of Fancy Free Me is hosting!
One of the things I love about her nursery is the use of a wood antique piece serving as a changing table.
I see this a lot with a the wood painted out (which is a great idea if you find a piece in less-than-ideal shape) - but how fabulous is leaving the wood? It adds sophistication and character to a room that can get too cute real fast. Plus, we've heard it a million times, but it is definitely a piece that can 'grow with your child'. I've rounded up a few examples for any of you designing a nursery anytime soon.

I loooove those changing tables. I would hate to buy an actual changing table only to have to get rid of it years later. An antique piece is perfection.

I love this changing tables! I wonder how they would look if painted white... I've been picturing everything white lately :)

I hate regular changing tables and I'm so on board with using a pretty dresser. Also some things should just never get painted and leaving them in plain wood is just better.
Have a great weekend.

Yes! I always love the original wood. It can be a bit sad when a gorgeous piece gets painted over..! (or it can look awesome, but I still love wood :)

I love the idea of an antique piece of furniture used this way. I also love that it will have a life after the baby grows up.

I'm loving the roundup! Clearly I'm a fan of non-traditional changing tables :) Have a great weekend!!

Cute roundup and I love a sleep mask! We have no blinds in our barn conversion, so they are a total necessity!
