Our readers have shown time and again that you don't need a degree in woodworking to make a great play kitchen and now reader (and pal!) Joanne proves that you don't even need wood. A little ingenuity, some cardboard boxes and other easily attained items and she's produced a lovely kitchen for her daughter to play in. When her daughter moves on to other toys, she can pass it on or recycle it.

Other components: white contact paper, knobs, used CD's and a brownie pan (genius!).

As Joanne says, she "ended up with a very happy little girl." This project can definitely be accomplished in a weekend and we hope it inspires someone else to make very happy little girls and boys!
