We just took wide enough board and fastened it to the crib using two Z shaped “gizmos”.
We used FIXA felt pads to protect the crib from scratches. This way it is steady enough but can be easily removed when needed.
Detach and store the crib top changing table when not in use.

#1 MALM baby changing unit
After I came across those two hacks, I decided that I had to build my own changing table for my baby daughter, who will be born soon. Yes, I could buy an already built changing table, but all the ones I saw, including Ikea ones, lacked storage space. See more of the IKEA MALM baby changing table.
#2 Cheap baby changing unit
I made another hack. This time it’s a cheap baby changing unit. We made it out of 4 IKEA LACK side tables in high gloss yellow. See more of the cheap baby changing unit.
#3 HEMNES diaper changing table
I used an old HEMNES chest of drawers to make a diaper changing table or “Wickeltisch” as we say in Germany.
First thing I did was to pull all the drawers out and paint the rest in white. (It was a little tricky on the sides but it worked. I use lots of “children safe” paint). See more of the HEMNES diaper changing table.
