Don’t be stranded without a changing table
CountryDan turns the Stranda into a changing table. It looks great and can be returned to its former self when baby grows up.
CountryDan says, “We added a change table to the top of the Stranda drawer unit to make a great functional baby change table that can be removed when it’s no longer needed without marking the drawer unit. We also painted it white, and it looks much better. The Stranda is great because it has an oversize front, which conceals the sliders for the hack.
To make the baby change unit simply cut 100mm timber to the unit length, and 150mm timber to the unit width. Screw or nail the pieces together (sand ends first on the front side as it will be visible) with the tops flush, this leaves the cross pieces hanging down over the Stranda, and the frame supported by the long pieces on top. Add 10mm x 20mm timber to the 150mm sections at the bottom, leaving 20mm for the frame to slide on.
That is it, give it some paint and it’s done – and we added a divider to keep nappies etc on top.
