Adjustable baby changing table and book shelf
This disabled parent lives in NYC where space is tight. She installed an adjustable activity center shelf wall for a baby changing station, storage and book shelf. The table is low enough for her wheelchair to roll under and safely change her daughter’s diapers and clothes. She also has her sit on the table while she brushes and does her hair. Once her daughter doesn’t need the changing table anymore, she can adjust the table down lower to make an activity table. And then adjust it higher later when the daughter gets older and she needs a desk.
