I have been ooo’ing and ahhh’ing over DIY play kitchens for months. I especially love the ones made from bound-for-the-trash furniture pieces. These little DIY’d gems are so adorable (and such a great chance to paint some kitchen cupboards, since the Hubs vetoed painting ours ages ago).
Because Hubby & I have chosen not to have children, I pushed these ideas to the back of my mind until one day it dawned on me: there are kids in my family! How the heck did I forget? I’m the worst auntie/cousin. Having remembered about my tiny family members, I am finally planning my own mini-kitchen makeover, for my adorable little cousin (you can spot her in this post).
I rounded up some inspiration, and I am headed off in search of some thrifty supplies. Has anyone made one of these? Any tips, tricks or ideas?
UPDATE: I actually made one! Check it out here.

Below is one of the coolest makeovers I’ve seen. I love that someone saw potential in that wall unit!
