Re Purposed Vintage Metal Changing Table

This vintage changing table is from the fifties or sixties. It's in good shape for it's age, but I don't recommend using it for a changing table. I don't think it would pass today's safety standards.
I think it could be reused as a "go to" table when you need an extra serving piece.
It could be used for a folding table in a laundry room, as a plant stand or for numerous other things.
Below are some before and after pictures.
The changing table has a strap to hold the baby in place, a shelf below for holding diapers and such, plastic pockets for various small objects.

It folds up pretty compact.

Here's a close up of the pockets below the table.

In this picture, I have removed the pad, strap and both pockets.

It's nice to think outside the box and reuse things from the past.

I plan to take this to the Makers and Doers, Weekend in the Country Festival September 27th and 28th.

How much did you end up selling for?

That was a long time ago, but I think it was $65.
