This week, I was there to find some fabric for a runner to sit atop our dresser-turned-changing-table. The dresser formerly resided in my bedroom growing up, but my generous parents parted with it so that I could put it to use for Baby Milam.
She's a fine piece of furniture but she needed a little something.
It took me some waddling up and down the aisles to settle on a fabric choice, but I finally decided that this was the best fit.
The dresser is 19" wide, so I measured out 23" of fabric. Giving myself 2" on each side to work with.
After folding the fabric, I ironed the hems in place to help me when feeding it through the sewing machine. Then it was pedal to the metal.
And presto, chango! I just need to add my changing pad a top the dresser and the changing station is complete.
The runner only took me about 30 minutes to put together, and the 2 yards of fabric cost me $14.00. I'm working on making 2 pillows with the extra fabric that I have.
