I finally finished my dresser/ changing table for my little girl's room, and just in time. She will be here this week:sweatdrop:. By the way I still have not finished the crib. I made the top rail removable so when she grows past the diaper stage we can have a flat top dresser.
It is made from select pine. Color is Puritan Pine and finished with polyacrylic. I did prestain but still have a little bit of dark spots but not bad. And those purple butterfly pulls match the rest of the room decor.

Sorry these pics are a little fuzzy they are from my cell phone. It is not as blotchy as it looks in these pics.

It looks very nice. None of my eight kids had such nice items as a baby.

Thanks for sharing.

I like it! The couple of times I worked with pine it has been difficult to prevent the dark spots, more so with a dark stain. On this dresser nothing seems to look out of place, it looks great.

Kids normally wear diapers/pull-ups for 2-3 years and, from my experience, changing tables are only used until the young one starts walking, which around 8-11 months. It is a good idea to have the top remove. It would be sad to not be able to use such a nice piece of artwork only after a year. It is such a nice piece that I know it will be cherished for many years to come.
