Modern Nursery Side Table

First I want to thank all everyone for the overwhelming number of compliments on Emma Grace’s dresser update that I featured last week! You guys are the best!  So this week I thought I would share another furniture piece that we made for the nursery.  In the corner of the nursery by the rocker I knew I wanted some sort of side table that I could at least put her baby monitor on and maybe a glass of water to keep me going through those midnight feedings.  Jeremy volunteerd his amazing wood working skills and said that he would make me something so I would finally stop trolling Craigslist!  So, I turned over all control to him (which by the way never happens 🙂 ) and let him do his thing and I got one fun and funky little side table!

I love how it turned out.  It is funky and modern but works great with the traditional style of the dresser all at the same time!  Jeremy even rounded the edges of the table top to mimic the details of the dresser.

My favorite part?  Guess how much the entire project cost us?  ZERO…ZILCH…NADDA!  He used all scrap wood he had lying around and paint we had on hand.  Now granted we do have quite a bit of scrap wood because of how much woodworking he does but still even if we had bought the wood the cost would have been minimal.  Another one of favorite features of the table is the legs.

Funky right?  They remind me of giraffe legs which is too funny because guess what one of the accent fabrics we used in her nursery was?

Oh little fun baby giraffes!  Aren’t they cute?  Okay another fun fact about this side table.  Take a look at the photo below again and see if you can see anything that might “match up” to the table.

Do you see it?  Check out the back of the changing tray on the top of the dresser.  Now look at the legs of the table.  Do you see it yet?  Jeremy actually used the scrap piece of wood that he cut out from the top of the back of the changing table for the legs!  Before Emma Grace was born I worked at a an awesome baby boutique and when we lost our vendor who made changing table trays my very talented hubby stepped in to help.  So, the top of four changing tray backs were turned into side table legs.  Pretty cool huh?

Alright stay tuned because next week I’m going to show you an update to her crib and how we have changed things up over the past year.  We are getting so close to a final reveal!  Are you ready?!?!?!
