TV Cabinets To Play Kitchens? Here's How

By Tony Lide

The TV cabinets of modern times are little, sleek, and built to contain the slim plasma TVs that have become so beloved. They are practically nothing like the cabinets of ten years ago, which were huge and bulky with numerous shelves and cupboards. These big objects might have become obsolete but instead of tossing yours out, think about transforming it into a fun and homemade play kitchen.

Play kitchens are extremely popular toys among younger children and toddlers. The sets generally feature kid sized ovens and refrigerators and come with a wide variety of plastic dishes and utensils. Unfortunately, they tend to cost upwards of two hundred dollars. Making one yourself, however, will ensure that you spend a lot less while getting to recycle your unused furniture.

First, pay attention to the layout of your used media center and design the new play set based on it. The shelves and cupboard locations could end up being great for the kitchen's play fridge and stove. Draw out your ideas, including where sink hole will be, and place it near the area to use as a helpful guide.

Remove all the unnecessary shelves and glass and then give the fixture a thorough sanding. Then, use a saw to cut your desired holes. Make sure these openings are the correct size and then begin painting the object.

The item's original cabinet doors can also double as great oven and dishwasher openings. Procure an aluminum colored spray paint and coat the doors in it. For the oven door, paint the glass black or use dark contact paper to simulate the real thing.

Next, attach the doors back and add your final paint coats. As for the sink of the kitchen, a large plastic bowl will work and an old sink tap can be fixed above it. Painted coasters or small lids are great makeshift stove tops and you can even attach little knobs next to them if you have any. If a fridge was included in the set, you can glue magnets to its door to make opening it a little more realistic.

Once the set's construction is through, you can start stocking it with fun extras. A big photo of your garden can be glued to the back of the fixture to serve as a realistic window. Then, hang small plastic cookware above the oven from small nails and fill the refrigerator and cupboards with pretend plastic foods and other items. The child in your life will definitely thank you!
