Old Baby Furniture

Scrap or salvage? Safety concerns mean that most vintage baby furniture should be used in a different room (especially if it’s wood and can be disassembled) or donated.

How to reuse them: Cristin at Eve of Reduction took an old baby changing station and turned it into a desk. The disassembled parts didn’t come with hardware, so Frank attached her own with wood glue. Next, to make room for a desk chair, Frank used a jigsaw to convert the second shelf into an open storage unit. Small L-brackets were used to create the shelf corners, and to attach the vertical piece to the desk’s underside. Visit her blog for more photos and a detailed step-by-step.
