Congratulations, if all goes well you have received the wall changing table. The baby's room is almost finished with this piece of furniture! The baby may come. But what now, how do you hang it? Here are the five best tips to safely mount it on the wall.
What do you need? The 4 included plugs, bolts and washers., cordless drill, vacuum cleaner, roll size and the expectant mother and a few extra hands.
1. Choose a Solid Wall
Choose a solid wall where the chest of drawers prefers to hang a supporting wall. Read here how to check that.
2. Determine the height
Determine the height of the changing table. The point here is that if you put your baby on the changing mat of the changing table, your elbows have an angle of 90 degrees. But how do you do that? Stand with your back against the wall and draw the bottom of your elbows. Then go down 7 cm and then you have the line where you want to have the lid of the wall changing table. Draw two light dashes with pencil. Pay attention to whether you are standing with your shoes or bare feet. Measuring with shoes with heels is not a good idea. This way you stand with a straight back behind the changing table. Because you often put your baby in this place, it is certainly important that the changing table hangs at the right height.
3. Mark the boreholes
Draw off the boreholes. This is easiest when you are just the two of you. Unfold the wall frame and aim the bottom at the imaginary line you just made. Now draw the 4 drill holes with pencil.
4. Drill the holes for
Drill with a cordless drill the holes in the wall where the plugs come in. Be careful not to hit any pipes and put the plugs in. A vacuum cleaner is also useful to directly suck up the drilling dust. Use the four plugs bolts and washers that come with the changing table. They are exactly tailored to size, making hanging easy.
5: Hang the changing table on
Gum the pencil stripes of your wall. Put the ring around the bolt, and turn it into the plug. Well with the changing table in between hey :) And do this 4 times.
Voila the wall changing table hangs. Wish you a lot of dress-up fun. And if you hang the changing table, I think it's very cool if you send a photo for our Lookbook.
Hey Hello, we are Melanie and Joost and we have two children Max and Fleur. If you've lost us, we'll be on the water, because we love sailing. We met at Orionis, the Amsterdam student sailing club, where I organized the competition and Joost won the competition.
Together with my husband I like to go out with camper "Goofy".
Joost is a sustainability consultant and furniture designer . I, am the business brain and a Mac enthusiast. As an online product owner I take care of the online part of Babywoods .
Binnen de professionele kinderopvang is de inrichting van een verschoonplek een van de belangrijkste aspecten van de werkplek. Veel baby’s, peuters en kleuters worden in de loop van de dag, meerdere malen en vaak door verschillende verzorg(st)ers verschoond. Daarom staan veiligheid en ergonomie voorop. Uiteraard is de hygiëne ook een heel belangrijk punt.
My company was founded during my first maternity week. In 2016 I gave birth to my son, because of my delivery I suffered from pelvic instability where I was advised to walk as few stairs as possible. Joost, my husband, made the first model wall changing table as a maternity gift and hung it on the toilet so that I did not have to walk upstairs to change our son.
He received plenty of compliments from maternity care and midwives. They also told me that there may be more parents interested in this handy product
