I got this nightstand for FREE this past summer and had been holding on to it not sure what to do with it.
Then I kept seeing pictures of play kitchens made from nightstands floating around "blog land" and my vision for this piece became quite clear.
My husband and I transformed it into a Kitchen just in time for our daughters 3rd birthday
Before (with the handles removed)
I found the spice rack in a pile of junk someone was throwing out and spray painted it a raspberry color.
The faucet was found at a thrift store for 2 bucks.
I had the handles leftover from a previous project.
The oven and faucet knobs were wooden craft feet that someone gave me and sprayed silver.
Old C.D.'s for the stove top.
The shutters are wooden heater/air vents that we found out Habitat ReStore for a total of 6 bucks. My husband cut them down and hinged them.
The sink is an old enamel pot with the handle cut off of it.
I made the pot holder and embellished a washcloth from a vintage pillowcase.
My husband re-did the top drawer and hinged it so it could be used as a oven.
The bottom drawer is perfect for storage.
Over all this project cost us about $12.00 and has already brought hours of entertainment for our 3 year old and though I'm sure he will never admit it our 6 year old son loves it too!!
