Changing Table Americaine, Années 60!

brussels_changing_table.jpg

The off-kilter photo is giving me a headache, but otherwise, this vintage table a langer, or how you say, changing table, which DT reader Catherine [sweet blog here] just spotted on Belgian eBay, is pretty sweet. The seller thinks it's a typical American design from the 60's or 70's, which I think might give American diaper changing culture of the time a little too much credit.

There are handy side pullouts, a tray on the far side and a diaper drying rack [above]. Not shown here: the split in the veneer, or the burn mark on top from where some maman stamped out her cigarette while changing the kid's diaper. Truly, a relic from a different place and time.
