1. A Table Split In Two: This former changing talbe now has a split personality. Half is a living room shelf, the other a cat nap location.

2. Changing Table Transformed Into Driving Dresser: This table didn't receive any major construction, but instead a very specific paint job. It's now ready for a test drive!

3. Before & After: Changing Table Turned Play Kitchen: This Mom turned a basic changing table with attached closet into a play kitchen, complete with magnetic fridge.

4. Before & After: A Changing Table Turned Media Stand: Although this changing table was technically a chest of drawers before it was a changing table, it's been put back into it's original use (or close to it) and received a new shiny makeover to boot.

5. How To: Changing Table Into Bar: Although it may seem funny to turn a piece of furniture associated with children into a cart to hold all your booze, it's actually a pretty perfect shape.
