IKEA Gulliver Changing Table

Since I am turning my nursery closet into a dressing room with changing table, I needed something slightly smaller than the standard tables.  After much searching, I settled on the IKEA Gulliver Changing Table.  Its just over 32" wide, as opposed to the 36" size that most tables come in.  Plus, its white and matches my other furniture pretty closely.  Since it is a little on the small side I needed a changing pad that would fit, and I ordered the LA Baby Contour Pad in 30" from

Here it is all set up in my pink closet:

Here is a close up with the storage containers I found at The Container Store.  The changing pad cover is from DwellStudio for Target.

Overall, I am really happy with the table, and its $69 price tag, but keep in mind that if you want to add bins to conceal your diapers and wipes you can expect to spend another $60 for 4 of them.

This is an adorable nursery! I was wondering, though, how you're finding the fit of the Dwell cover on the changing pad. We're thinking of getting that same L.A. Baby pad, but are worried about the fact that no covers seem to be the correct size for it. I know it's not as dangerous as when a crib sheet is too big for a mattress, but I did wonder if you found what you had was too big and sometimes came off during changing (which I'd imagine would be annoying). Thanks in advance for any insight you have on this!

The cover is a bit loose, but I just pull it tight on the back where the elastic is. And honestly, I keep a Carter's waterproof flat pad on top anyway because she always seems to be leaking on the cute changing cover! So the cute one is mostly covered up and I feel like it is perfectly safe. She actually LOVES the changing table and seems very happy and smiley there.
