Luke can throw some impressive fits. He straightens his legs and slams his butt down over and over. One of these incidents broke the flimsy particle board changing table top. Paul fixed it by screwing in a nice, thick, piece of plywood to make a much sturdier changing surface.
Plywood is, by nature, not a "finished" sort of thing, and it tends to be rather splintery. Since Luke had pretty much outgrown the contoured pad we had on the top, I decided to use contact paper to create a smooth, easy to clean, surface.
And the finished project! Now I can wipe it down easily, and it's much more stable. Not sure what we'll do when he outgrows it, length wise, but I'm sure we'll figure something out when the time comes.
The bins on the top shelf are Katie's. One with training pants and panties. One with socks and her night brace. And one that holds pull ups (for night time) and stump socks.
The bins on the bottom shelf (visible in the "before" photo) have Luke's cloth diapers and covers in them. The organizer hanging off the right side holds disposable diapers and wipes, and some small odds & ends. The box on the changing surface is stink sacks.
I'm so glad Paul is creative and handy. I was having a hard time changing Luke in the crib while it was broken. I kept forgetting to put my hair up first, and I'd lean over him and get hair in his face. First world problems, right? I know it's silly, but I'm so grateful to have it fixed that it's a good reminder to be thankful for all the little things.
