Convert Old TV Cabinets Into State of the Art Play Kitchens

You’ve seen these clunky monsters at Goodwill, garage sales, or possibly in your own basement.  I’ve got to say, I never saw this coming. These sturdy, state of the art play kitchens are some of the best examples of furniture re-use I’ve ever seen.  See what I mean…This first one was lovingly converted into a cute little red and white kitchen by Milla’s grandma and grandpa. (Can you imagine how much fun they had?)

A kitchen area containing a refrigerator, stove, sink and a microwave.Would you look at those little shelves on the fridge door?

"TV Cabinet Converted into kitchen Cabinet"

Amy, mom of Milla and author of Giggleberry Creations blog,  got the inspiration for the cabinet conversion from  North Carolina blog, Sutton Grace. She gave up on the idea of doing this herself. Mum and Pop came through.

Erin, of Sutton Grace, started off with almost the same discarded cabinet.

And this is the modern little kitchen she created:
