How To Turn An Old TV Cabinet Into A Stunning Play Kitchen

Tara’s young son loves helping out in the kitchen, playing chef, and helping her bake cookies. That is when Tara came up with a brilliant way to repurpose the family’s old TV cabinet. Instead of tossing the vintage piece of furniture away, she decided to convert it into a play kitchen. Each compartment is the space perfect to create a faux kitchen appliance.

Tara turns the side shelf into a mock fridge, the middle shelf into a play stove, and two bottom compartments into an oven and a dishwasher. With a few simple modifications and coats of paint, the project is even cooler than something you would buy at the store. Using nothing but a sticky kitchen tile and four old CDs, Tara creates four pretty convincing stove burners. With nothing but a cardboard box, she makes her little one a microwave. The project shows that little bits and bobs around the house can really be transformed into anything!

There’s no need to spend a fortune on expensive toys. Children have wild enough imaginations and can get a lot of playtime out of a simple classic creation like this one. If Tara’s son has as big of an imagination as she did when creating this, he is definitely going to have a blast with his very own play kitchen!

Please SHARE this awesome project if you think your kids will love it!

    How do they know the paintings are about the area they were painted in and not something they transposed from other artwork and even writing? They assume that.
