Nursery Design: Drawers + Change Table

To come up with a design for our nursery I've been trawling through Pinterest admiring the most adorable nursery rooms and getting inspiration for setting up a nursery for our new addition.

It's not hard to see that I really love the look of a chest of drawers that doubles as a change table with a change mat on top.

Not only is this a great use of space as you don't need a separate change table which will take up room but it's also budget friendly as it's less furniture to buy.

I have chosen the Ikea Hemnes 8 drawers (see first photo above) as it's the perfect size in length to accommodate a change mat and change supplies at easy hands reach.

The height also had to be considered and it's a perfect height as it's the same height as most change tables - not too tall for me to use and not too low for Mr P.

As I'm trying to design the nursery on a budget I have been keeping an eye on Gumtree and managed to find the exact drawers I wanted, brand new, still in original packaging, on Gumtree for almost half the price.

Now I'm impatiently waiting for Mr P to assemble the flat pack drawers so that I can set them up and share them with you!

What did you use as a baby change table?

  1. We were terrible and used just the changing part of our pack and play in the family room for our changing table!! I was given my brother's old furniture for Nathan, so it didn't have a changing table... I love these ideas and yes the height needs to be decent or you'll get a sore back changing all those diapers! I can't wait to see the nursery when you get it all done! Yay!


    1. I have come to realise everyone is different when it comes to parenting and you've just got to do what works for you! Whilst I have all intentions of using my drawers as a change mat who knows I may end up doing it on the bed or the floor! x

  2. Is redid my old (childhood) dresser and chest of drawers in our nursery years ago but ended up changing our babies in their crib most often. Where ever you keep most of your supplies is most likely where you'll do most of your 'work.' I'm so excited for you! Congratulations!!

    1. What a beautiful gesture to reuse a childhood dresser for your child! I think with all good intentions I may well be changing the baby wherever I am at the time :)
