I gave myself 3 days to build this since our Doc wants to get the baby born earlier than we thought. We needed a changing/diaper station/holder of misc baby things table for the nursery and being short on cash and time I bought some “Espresso” shelves from the bargin bin of HD and used some cut offs from my workbench build to get this done with.

It aint the finest thing ever built but She loves it and that’s all that matters.

Looks good, low cost, the wife’s happy and you got some shop time in. Sounds like a win all the way around.

Thanks guys! I just updated the pics with some of it in place with all the stuff on it. My wife is in love with it so this is probably my favorite project to date :D

Nice job buddy. Way better than the crappy target one we had. It barely lasted 3 kids. Why buy when you can build ehh?

Just under the wire!!

May i recommend Beadreux’s (sp?) Butt Paste be added to the arsenal of midget cleaning/hygiene tools. Stuff is pricy but when the d rash rolls in its invaluable.

Best if luck to you and the missus!

Thanks guys ! Everything gets underway at 1600 pst tomorrow. I have never been so scared and excited at the same time lol.

Stef.. thanks for the heads up on the Butt Paste. I remember stocking that back when I worked for Wallyworld. I will have to go pick some up ;-)

Great looking table Eric. Prayers with you and yours that there are no complications and a healthy baby and wife and long life.
Looks like you are going cloth and disposable. Some Diaper rash cremes/lotions should not be used with the cloth diapers and i believe Butt Paste is one of them. They mess up absorbancy and some make the diapers smell like bad fish even after washing them. We still had it for use with disposable and it is good stuff. For use with the cloth, i recommend CJ’s BUTTer.

Best wishes. We’ll see you in a few months when you’ve gotten some sleep. :)
Great changing table for a guy that claims to be a beginner and in a rush.
OJM, those aren’t cloth diapers on that shelf. :) A&D ointment worked better for us than Butt Paste, but didn’t have the cool name going for it.

Ditto, well done and looks great. Butt you already have the right stamp of approval; didn’t need to hear it from me! Congrats on the new arrival, too!
