Nursery & Guest Room Re-Design

This shared living space will need to accommodate our new baby boy and an older teen brother on alternating weekends. Not to mention the occasional house guest/s. In order to fit all the essential furniture a full size bed, crib, glider, accent table, and changing table/dresser, we decided to turn the large closet into a built in storage space. The refurbished changing table/dresser will be positioned inside the closest which leaves wall and floor space for the other pieces. A dresser and changing table are essential nursery pieces, but with a modest budget and space we resigned to purchasing and refurbishing used items. With such limited space in this room we realized we wouldn’t be able to place comfortably a traditional changing table and a separate dresser. It was clear that repurposing a dresser into dual purpose changing table/storage was key. I was about to donate a tall, four drawer dresser that we had no space for in any of our bedrooms. Then it hit me that I could remove the bottom drawer and cut it down to be a comfortable counter height. It would have been a shame since it was hand built by my grandfather for my father in 1951.
