We turned on old GULLIVER changing table into LEGO/ kids play tables. This was actually an extremely simple NaNo that only took about 30 minutes total to complete from disassembly to reassembly.
- Saw for cutting wood (or equivalent)
Hack instructions for LEGO/ kids play tables:
Completely disassemble the sides of the changing table.
Take the 2 vertical sides of the changing table and with a saw, cut in a straight line right along where the first level of wooden beams ends.
Do this process for both vertical sides. Once done, sand both of the sides that were cut and make sure they are even in length. If they are not even, adjust accordingly.

Once you reassemble, your one changing table has now been converted into 2 small kids tables. You can use both tables as LEGO tables by gluing down LEGO baseplates and add LEGO bins for storage.
You can also use both kids tables for other purposes: eating tables, stuffed animal organizer, pretty much anything. The tables end up at the perfect height for a standing 2-3 year old or a sitting 4-6 year old.
