Jamie from Southern Revivals thought outside the box when she decided to turn a used entertainment center into a play kitchen for her niece’s 3rd birthday.
The entertainment center was given a new coat of white paint. Wallpaper was applied to the back of the cabinet wall, and new doors were added to make the cabinet doors. Round wooden plaques were used for the stove tops, and a little microwave was found online to complete the look. Everything from the mini curtains, to the insides of the cabinets was well thought out as well thought out for this beautiful little creation.

Crystal from Fussy Monkey Business had a vintage end table that was sitting in her attic for 2 years which was purchased at a local garage sale for just $5 dollars. She didn’t know quite what to do with it, because it looked dated. It was when she was playing with her children, that the idea came to mind that the piece could be used as a lego table. She used a jig saw for the top, and used a lego plate that she bought from a local store to create this one of a kind piece.

Do you want to get organized this next year? Take your cues from this mom who put together a command center where the kids could drop off their homework, the families calendar was within reach, and the important phone numbers and info could be found. As you can see, she simply created a box on the rectangular wall using tape, which she then painted with chalkboard paint. Use clip boards, mount an erasable calendar in a frame, and utilize some wooden desk organizers which could be painted and drilled into place. What do you think? Do you need one of these for your own home?
