Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Changeable Changing Table

A while back I found this wicker changing table at an antique store. It wasn't really antique and it was only $30.00 so I bought it. It's been a very versatile piece of furniture. I've used it as storage in a home office/craft room. It worked really well as a bedside table in our bedroom. We have such a high bed it was the perfect height. It stored stitchery projects I was working on, a lamp, clock, books, magazines, and I could hide a 2 pound box of See's Candy in there with no problem. ;o) It's current residence is in the master bathroom. Hence the toilet paper. Please ignore the unfinished baseboard. That project's #96 on our to do list.

What a great idea...it does hold a lot too. I wish I could find one just like it for my daughter, her baby is due like this week and she doesn't have one yet. Very cute :D

I love pieces like this, they always live on in new incarnations. I saw an old Jenny Lind changing table used as a potting bench too somewhere, thought that was a clever idea.

Do you still hide a two pound box of See's? Awesome. My kids keep finding my stashes, little stinkers.
