DIY Nursery: Change up that change table

Every nursery needs a change table, give yours a bit of personality with this simple style-up.

Supplies:

* Your change table with knobs or handles

* A screwdriver to match the types of screws used on the original knobs/handles and the new knobs/handles (usually a standard size phillips head screwdriver)

* Shiny new knobs or handles!

Method:

1. Choose your change table.  We chose a simple white change table from Baby Kingdom in Alexandria (the Grotime Kimberley for those who are interested!).  I like that it allowed us to remove the change table part once we have finished with it to become an ordinary chest of drawers.  For the mums & dads – it also has some safety features to prevent it toppling over onto curious little ones, but that’s a whole other post!

2. Chose your new knobs or handles.  We purchased shiny crystal knobs from That Vintage Shop in Marrickville.  The knobs are priced around $7-11 each.

3. Unscrew original knobs from the inside of the draw.
