What can you do with a baby changing table that you don’t need anymore? How about turning it into a DIY kitchen island!
You can build a small kitchen island or kitchen cart for a small kitchen with it. But you can also build a large one if you have the space. Yes – while still making use of the changing table! ;)
The idea is to have a large table top and use the old changing table as one of its legs. Therefore, you will only have to get 3 table legs for this project. It’s a clever solution for providing storage under a large DIY kitchen island without having to start from scratch.
If you want more storage space, you can simply add a small wire rack beside the changing table as shown in the featured project. Another thing that we like about this idea is that the changing table still provides some space under one side for keeping stools out of the walkway.
For these reasons, turning a changing table into a kitchen island is definitely a nice way for giving this piece of furniture a new purpose.
So if you or you know someone who has a changing table lying around then have your tools and materials ready and start working on the newest addition to your kitchen!
Now as we’ve mentioned at the start you can definitely build a small version. If you don’t have the required space for this large size, we’ve also added other changing table kitchen island examples to our album below where you can get inspiration from. ;)
