When Ann Marie decided to take on a project for her son’s school auction, she was lucky to find this old entertainment system for free on Craigslist. After some hard work and for only a $15 investment in supplies, she transformed this unwanted piece into a showstopping French kitchen that any child would love.

It is the little touches that help make this play kitchen such a standout- the chandelier, the window with the view of the Eiffel Tower, the black and white damask curtain all add a touch of whimsy to this project.

If you have the space for such a big piece, you should have no problem finding an entertainment center of your own to make over. Even if you don’t have the necessary room for this kitchen, it can serve as an inspiration to take a second look at the extraordinary possibilities in an ordinary piece of furniture.
