Ikea Hack: Tarva Dresser Transformed Into a Changing Table

Yesterday I shared my furniture selection for the nursery with you. Today I am going to explain how I transformed the Ikea Tarva 6-drawer dresser into a custom changing table for our nursery.
This dresser was the inspiration for my changing table. I love everything about it, except for the price tag, $899. YIKES! On top of the outrageous price, I wanted white furniture for the nursery so that ruled out the Copley dresser completely.

During my search for a cheaper alternative I discovered the Tarva 6-drawer dresser. It is a very simple dresser that can be easily customized to fit any d├ęcor style. I love that it is made out of unfinished solid wood and the dimensions are almost perfect for a changing table. I came up with a game plan on how to make a deeper top and add trim to the drawer fronts to dress it up a bit and then I got to work!
