Repurposed Play Kitchen

We've seen play kitchens made from many different components - lots of Ikea, thrifted and found items, but we hadn't seen this idea yet. Take a close look - can you tell what common, not particularly attractive, piece of furniture Erin used to create this nifty, blue kitchen for her daughter?

Here it is - an entertainment center! This is usually the kind of unwieldy piece you're happy to unload at a garage sale or donate to the Salvation Army so Erin's friends and family probably thought she was a bit crazy to buy it on Craigslist. But she loves repurposing things and she definitely made the most of this piece.

It's hard to believe, but this was Erin's first time tackling a project with power tools (although she did get some assistance from her mom) and she estimates she only spent about $65 in the end. We love the bright blue paint and adore that she created a view out of the window.

Pay Erin at visit at Sutton Grace to see lots of photos and read more about how she took this piece from drab to fab!
