Small Dresser/Changing Table

When my wife and I found out we were expecting our first child, I knew I wanted to build as much as I could for the nursery. This is how I ran into Ana White's website. Since then, I have built several pieces of furniture all inspired from Ana's designs. It had been over 10 years since I had done any kind of woodworking and I'm finding myself enjoying it now more than ever.

For our changing table, I used the idea of Ana's Small Dresser, and chose to put the shelf on top, we figured it would be more useful to have bins located on top for lotions, diapers, etc We had a great time building this changing table, and it is very rewarding to see the finished product. Thanks Ana for all of the great ideas and plans!!!

I'm determined to build as much as our future child's furniture as possible, and I am very much inspired by this build. Really love the drawers you placed on this piece- they look great!

This is beautiful! I am going to make this for my daughter as she is going to have my first grand baby. Could you tell me the over all height is and the drawer and shelf heights are?
