Our little guy is getting bigger and more independent, which means strapping him into a highchair is getting challenging. We wanted to get him a kids table, but they start at $100 – and that’s just for the table! So, we decided to build one. It cost us under $50 for all the materials and what’s even better, it looks great!

I have had this bookshelf for about 15-20 years and decided to give it a makeover to use in our baby’s room, but the design can be used in “adult” spaces as well. The piece is made from particleboard with a real wood veneer, making it a little easier to work with than a laminate finish. This can be done with laminate, but priming so the paint doesn’t scratch will be key.
