Change station for the nursery that I designed using Sketchup.

The end result was not exactly the same as the original design, but it better suited the baskets that my wife had already purchased. The station is made out of maple and then I used an aniline dye and gel stain to get it to a reasonably consistent Cappuccino colour to match the crib. Twelve 2.5” screws hold the straps to the wall (all in studs). This won’t come down.

Job done and I still have a month before the baby arrives!

Very nice design and the finish is great. Even if you have a COUPLE of Babies, you still have lots of room. ...LOL…

Looks great, never enough room for baby stuff.

I really like the color….I’m building a small side table out of pine and would like to do a similar finish. I’ve never used the aniline dye or gel stain you mentioned. Any resources that would help with the application of the dye? I would imagine I’d first have to seal the soft pine for an even application?

Great looking piece and congratulations on the coming new addition to the family!

Nice setup. Even after they outgrow diapers it can still be used for storage.
