Thrifty Thursday: Repurposed Changing Table

I haven't had much time lately to hit the thrift stores, but I did happen to swing by a garage sale this last weekend and pick up this antique changing table.  When I saw her I thought she would make a great little "potting bench"

The guy told me this piece was made in the 60's (not sure if that's true), but he gave it to me for $10
 so I gladly hauled her away!

And this is how she looks now, sitting on my front porch:

I used Valspar's Polar White, and then Wet Pavement for the cabinet faces:
I didn't use a primer or sand her, I just made my homemade chalk paint.

I added a simple stencil to the cabinet doors because it looked kinda boring. 
 But she turned out pretty cute, don't you think?!

 Remember the table I had here before?  Well, I still love it, but this repurposed changing table just fits better in this spot, and I found a better spot inside for the old table!  
So its a win/win!!


  1. Love it! I have to ask though, with all the furniture you redo, where do you put it all!? LOL

    1. Ha! I know, right?! I'm def running out of room, and I promised my hubs I wouldn't turn into a hoarder!! lol

  2. Such a transformation.. and looks like it fits perfectly.

  3. I love it!!!! :-) I might have to start looking for one myself! Visiting from The Pin Junkie.
