My S-I-L had a wooden changing table she was going to toss to the curb. When I heard this I immediately said "no no no let me take it. I will make it beautiful." After I got it home I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
I knew I wanted it to be black and I knew it definitely needed new hardware.
So I got to work.
I also added a little stencil to the door.
What I did was use a clear glaze so the stencil shows in a certain light.

Sorry for the grainy quality of the before picture.
I think it turned out great!
