week 2

Okay- last week I was sitting in my car waiting for a train to go by when I looked over & saw a  baby changing table right on the sidewalk (next to the trash) So I pulled over & I called my dad to come get it & bring it over to my house. What?- I couldn't get it myself  ... & I don't have a husband to do my dirty work:)

First I scrubbed it down . . . 
Then I brought it inside
I took off the straps & sawed off the unnecessary parts
Then I painted it white
Lined it with vintage liner I thrifted this week . .
Then I filled it with pretty Pyrex . . .
Happy Friday!

The changing table to shelf looks great! But your collection of Pyrex! Wow! I don't know if you had it out on display before, but that would make me smile every time I saw it. I wish I had a spot to get my meager collection out of the cabinet!

Smart re-style! I wouldn't have seen its potential as a shelf. Very lovely staging in the photos, too!

This is the best showcase and storage for Pyrex i've seen!! I see these changing tables in the thrifts all the time. Now I will get one and make this for myself. Thanks for sharing...hugs, Linda

Oh...gees....I love this. I am going to send the link to my pyrex loving friend too. She'll die. :) What a great idea!!

Love it! I have been searching for a changing table re-style for months and nothing was this clever. Sawing off the spindles and then displaying it from the BACK is key! Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous save! I love taking an old piece of furniture and reworking it for a new purpose! I guess it's the 'frugal' in me!

I totally would never have thought of using a changing table as a display shelf, looks great! Also, I am now regretting not picking up Pyrex any time I see it (rarely :( ) at the thrift store.
