Trofast changing table

No need to buy an expensive changing table. Just top a Trofast shelving unit with a changing table pad, just like how Beth and Shelli did theirs.

This is from Beth, who cut a piece of plywood 1″ larger than the changing table pad. She wrapped the plywood with teal fleece and her husband secured the plywood to the Trofast with a couple of L brackets.

She says, “It ended up costing a bit more than a regular changing table but we’ll be using it a lot longer. I like that they also sell shelves for the Trofast so that we can turn parts of this into a bookcase if we need to.”

Shelli’s pretty much the same but uses 4 Trofast units, a piece of plywood, fabric, a Trofast wall unit, a scrap piece of lumber and a changing pad.

    In the 1st changing table, online I easily find the tiered unit but what dimension is the tall individual shelf? I am having trouble locating the right one and don’t have an Ikea close enough to find it in person

    That is one of the best changing table I ever saw. It is very organize and very clean. I wish that I have that kind of changing table in my house.

    A pink floor would be lovely! But no, it’s deep red (a stock color of Lowe’s floor paint).

    I didn’t see a $30 changing table top when we bought this system last year and the piece of plywood we had in our basement was free. Yay, free!

    I find this hack strange considering ikea sells a changing table top for trofast for about $30

    Love the color scheme in the first photo! Is that a pink floor I see?

    I’ve seen people do this before – I do like the Trofast for this. I, however, slapped a changing pad on top of a Malm 3-drawer dresser. Even cheaper! Especially since the Malm was on sale.
