Spray paint love

I've been working on spray painting  C.'c changing table for several weeks now. It's been either windy, humid, or raining so it's been hard to get it done. I've just been doing a coat every once and awhile on a nice day.

I miss my changing table. So I decided to bring it in today and I figured I'll finish later. This goes against everything in my type-A firstborn personality, but I really want to use it again. I can't believe at one point I thought I could just change all C's diapers on the floor. Yeah right. I mean, I could if I had to, but I'm pretty much a wimp and don't like to bend over.

Here's a before picture:

I like it, but I have a lot of white painted furniture in C.'s room so I thought it would go better in there if it was painted white. I also have some dark brown baskets that I thought would look really sharp up against the white.

(What is that in the backround, you ask? That would be another spray paint project that is also still in the garage, unfinished. I think we might need to get rid of a car to make room for my paint projects.) 

Here it is (mostly) finished! I love it!

Baskets for diapers, shorts and pants, and various baby implements. (Diaper rash creme, vaseline, bulb syringe, nail clippers etc..)

 Close up of baskets. (Don't look too closely at the paint job! :)

With some of the other furniture.

This was such a good project to use spray paint for. With all the spindles using a brush would have taken FOREVER. I love spray paint.

I'm linking up with Thrifty Decor Chick:


  1. It looks great! My changing table is white but it needs some new paint. Time to get it done I guess!

  2. Thanks ladies! Good luck tackling yours Stacy!

  3. very cute Elyssa! I think i need a changing table, 2 babies and no changing table yet . . . hmmmm . . .

  4. Thanks! Changing tables are nice. At first I wasn't planning on getting one, but several people told me that they thought I would be glad I did, and a neighbor had this one she was selling for $10. Best $10 I ever spent. :)I take that back... the white noise cd comes #1.
