Why Not...Use A Tool Cart For A Changing Table?

Indeed. Congratulations to Cookie editor Meryl's friend Sara and her husband for this innovative use of an automotive tool cart for a smart, sleek and chic industrial-style changing table!

The industrial changing table that launched Daddy Types, which I made from a $50 Harbor Freight enameled steel tool cart, is still going strong, though we haven't used it as a changing table for K2, so much as a diaper and blanket dumping ground.

Also, Colgate seems to have bulked up the Mini-Contour Changing Pad, which used to be 30-inches long, and is now 33".

Meanwhile, I've been looking to swap it out with a real rolling tool chest, like an old Snap-on or Matco, etc., or a Craftsman from the Good Old Days, to hold all the kid's art supplies and stuff. They're harder to find than I would've expected.
