The Land of Oz Family took this end table…
…And turned it into this adorable play kitchen. I’m inspired!
You can also see how she turned a $12 nightstand from Goodwill into a play kitchen. Also, check out how Fresh Cut Flours turned a thriftstore TV stand into a play kitchen.
I am so excited. My 6 year old wants to be a veterinarian and I have been looking everywhere for a toy vet center that wasn’t cheap plastic and would break. I will be thrift store hunting today!!! Watch for pics.

Last year we converted a $18 thrift store children’s hutch into the most beautiful kitchen using tutorials we found online (and my husband’s handy abilities). The kids have never played with any toy more. A year later, they all still play with it daily. And it is beautiful!

Here’s ours! It gets regular use at our house!
It’s so ironic that you posted this!! DH and I have been so excited to start on one of these for our daughter for Christmas! (and that photo is one of the main ones we wanted to “go by”) It’s true it will probably end up costing as much as a secondhand one…but where’s the FUN in that!? 🙂 …now I just gotta learn to make all that cute felt food!
Awesome idea! Great way to repurpose the end table and it is WAY cuter, more durable and more functional than a $100 plastic thing. Will be trying it myself soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

How cute! Way to go! I wish I could do something like this 🙂
So cute. There’s a small entertainment center on the curb across the street from my house. And I keep trying to convince someone to take it and transform it. I have boys so they prefer Legos to kitchens right now or I’d take it! I even mentioned it on our local Freecycle. 🙂 It’s been out there for a week and really wants to be a kitchen. 😉
Very cute, but by the time you’d buy knobs, dishes, trims, fabric, etc. you could buy one already made secondhand for a lot less. I’ve picked up a workbench, kitchen, basketball hoop, and art desk for our son from Goodwill for between $2 and $6 each. I use Magic Erasers to clean marks from them and they’re as good as new.

So much cuter than the expensive, plastic ones you buy in the store!
I just discovered all these DIY furniture-to-play kitchen transformations! Here is a blog (not mine) that has a link to a bunch of ideas.
We have an old entertainment center just sitting in our garage. I can’t wait to transform it into something for my kids!
This is the cutest!! Makes me wish that my girls were little again!
