IKEA Sniglar changing table makeover

Materials: Sniglar changing table. Komplement drawer. 2 pieces of wood 72×1.4x4cm. Paint. Velcro. Fabric

Description: Needing a small (and not so expensive) changing table that had to stay in the entry hallway and therefore had to “hide” the diapers a little our search turn up none. So with a little paint and fabric we came up with this.

First all parts of Sniglar and the two pieces of wood where painted with a non-toxic paint.
Sniglar was assembled, then the two extra pieces of wood were placed under the top. The racks for Komplement went on the extra pieces.

Then with a lot of measuring I made four pieces of fabric that fit onto the sides of Sniglar with Velcro bands glued on the top and bottom sides as well as on the Sniglar table.

Got a few pieces of fabric leftover so made some little “bags” to put diapers and stuff in.

    the baby hasn’t fallen out yet, 11months and counting ;) . the size of the drawe was 50x58x16. but any komplemtn drawe that fits a 50cm wide cabinet will do fine.

    If it were a perfect world and babies could just change themselves I would not recomend this hack. However, it is quite good.

      The Sniglar IS A CHANGE TABLE!! They just added a very handy drawer and made it beautiful. I wish people like you would read and educate yourself before making useless comments like this. I am guessing everyone changes their baby on the floor in your perfect world.
