{Mint Chocolate Cookies}

I’ve been meaning to share my all-time favorite mint chocolate cookie recipe for a few years now. YEARS! But honest to goodness, each and every time I’ve made them they all disappeared before I ever stood a chance at taking a photo. Obviously no one likes to make a recipe when they can’t see what […]

{5 Reasons I Love My Ikea Kallax Change Table}

The Functionality The fact that Ikea sells this as a shelving unit means that when I no longer have a use for a change table I can re-purpose it as a completely different piece of furniture in any other area of my house. And since it’s not a dresser I’m not limited to keeping it […]

Davin - Nice to see Lyric’s room tidy for once. You should do a blog post on the basement (:

Sara - What change pad are you using? I love this idea but all the change pads I am finding are too wide to fit on top of this unit.

March 8, 2016 - 8:55 am

Lisa G. - Hey Sara! I actually bought our change pad used, but it’s just a standard one! I’ve looked at ones in store and it’s the exact same…I didn’t even realize there were different sized ones! Hope that helps!

Andrea Lebovic Haworth - This was so helpful. I’ve been trying to decide if the Kallax was a good idea for a change table and now I’m sold. Your nursey looks beautiful. Thank you!

Victoria - Hi! This post – along with some other cute photos – helped me decide to also use the ikea kallax as my changing table I’ve run into a little problem though, I was planning on using the keekaroo peanut changing pad but just discovered that it’s slightly over two inches wider than the table top! I started researching and can’t seem to find a single changing pad that isn’t wider than the top of the unit! I’m dying to know what changing pad everyone is using on top of their kallax changing tables! Thanks so much!

Lisa G. - Hi Victoria! Sorry for the late response – I bought our change pad used, from a friend and there are no tags on it, so I can’t tell you the brand. But I measured it and it’s 17-1/2″ wide x 4″ tall x 32″ long. The Kallax is 15-3/8″ deep so that’s only 2-1/8″ too narrow. However, ours sits right flush to the edge of it, but that’s because we don’t have the change table right tight to the wall. We’ve left room for the thickness of our baseboard and a little breathing room for the plug in receptacle that’s behind it too. Once you buy your kallax and have it set up I’m sure you’ll find that a standard change pad will fit it just fine! Good luck! =)

Lisa G. - Thank you Andrea! I’m so glad to have helped in your decision! Happy Designing!

Lisa G. - Thanks Kathryn, it’s from Ikea =)

{DIY Cotton Candy Halloween Costume}

Last year on Halloween Lyric was only barely five weeks old. Needless to say we could pretty well dress her up as anything and she couldn’t say much about it. I was nice and decided to make her look like a big delicious, fluffy helping of cotton candy. I think Davin wanted to make her […]

{Essential Oil Eczema Cream}

The seasons are changing and I already notice a difference in my skin. Yep, the weather wastes no time at all wreaking havoc on my skin! It dries easily and is already missing that added moisture from summer’s humid air. So it’s usually this time every year that I have to step up my moisturizing […]

{Everyday Uses for Essential Oils} » - […] This is one of the long lasting uses I’ve used since the very first time I brought home my own essential oils. I use it on myself and both of our girls and I wouldn’t change a thing about this recipe. I’ve shared it before and the reasons why I love it, which you can find here. […]
