Entertainment Center Turned Play Kitchen

We've seen your marvelous play kitchens made from pretty much everything under the sun (Ikea components, cabinets and cardboard boxes) so we'd love to show you this pretty one made from an outdated entertainment center.

Ta da! Brenda of HeyDay Living bought this entertainment center for $30 on Craigslist which is a good place to look. You might also try the Salvation Army, Goodwill and garage sales. Decor-wise behemoth entertainment centers are increasingly less popular, but, as you can see, they are really well suited to becoming play kitchens.

Of course it's the little touches that make these play kitchens so sweet and Brenda's is no exception. She kitted hers out with inexpensive finds mostly from the craft store and dollar store to add realistic touches. Head over to her blog HeyDay Living for more photos and details about the different accessories and components. Her daughter Reese received the play kitchen for Christmas and Brenda reports that she happily plays with it every day.

Thanks Brenda!
