Today I'm thankful for craigslist & pinterest.  I never have luck on craigslist.  I just don't think I have the patience to sift through all the ads.  I get bored or discouraged.  But I had been looking for an old entertainment center to turn into a play kitchen for the kids.  It's a big project and I'm not sure if I can do it, but I really want to try.

My friend is also doing this for her daughter.  She found her cabinet and showed me last night.  So when I got home I got inspired to look - I hadn't searched for one in a few weeks.  And BAM!  I found this unit:


Which is exactly what I'd been looking for.  I wanted it to have space below for storage and an oven, but also a cabinet on the side for a refridgerator.  I'm going to turn it into something like this:

 I'm super excited.  They'll have a cool & unique kitchen. It'll be sturdy and put up with their abuse.  I don't think there's anything wrong with the plastic ones, but they're so expensive and very kid-ish.  This I think will grow with them and not be such a "baby toy" when they're getting into school. 


  1. You're so clever! This will be adorable and I'm sure the kiddos will love it for an extremely long time!

    Can't wait to help put some "fun" things in this little kitchen!
