Beth Moberg-Wolff, a mother of three from Augusta, Georgia, hit upon one great idea to solve two perennial problems. First, she wanted to do something with her old changing table. Second, she wanted to organize all her gift-wrapping supplies in one easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain location. Recycling, it turns out, is the mother of invention: the changing table made the perfect wrapping station.
For everyday use, store your holiday wrappings in a bin until next year and restock the station with regular paper and ribbon.
We discovered that wrapping paper rolls fit perfectly on it," says Beth. "The top shelf was a great height for wrapping books and other smaller gifts, and the organizer that held lotion and creams could also hold tape, tags, scissors, and ribbon."
We couldn't find a lotion holder like the one that Beth's sister had sewn, but we found that a mesh shower caddy or small shoe bag hung from the table's side with shower curtain hooks works great for odds and ends like tape and tags, and a basket full of bows tied to the other side puts those final touches right within reach.
