before + after: buffet-turned-changing table
I’m a huge fan of mis-matched furniture in any room, but I especially love incorporating non-traditional pieces in nurseries and children’s spaces for a fun, unexpected twist! My client and good friend already had this buffet and wanted to use it as a changing table in her baby boy’s nursery – the size, lines and demilune shape were beautiful, but the finish was more yellow than “antique white”, like it looks like online, so it had to go. A good sanding and some gray/blue paint, rubbed back to reveal a newly-painted creamy white beneath gives this piece new life, while jute monkey’s fist pulls add texture and a touch of whimsy – perfect for a little one’s room!
