This DIY play kitchen is made out of one nightstand. What Gina did involved cutting the legs off the nightstand, buying scrap wood to add details, painting, and making the pretty curtain. The curtain, by the way, is my favorite detail of this cute play kitchen.
An entertainment center is the ideal building block of a handmade DIY play kitchen. The chef that owns the kitchen above is Milla. Her cooking area was built by her grandparents using an old TV unit that they got for $30. I love the shelves along the fridge doors! The window is a lovely touch, too.

Now THAT is a creative and fun transformation. This play kitchen is also for a little boy; it's pretty obvious from the masculine and modern design, right? My favorite part of this play kitchen will have to be the chalkboard door of the fridge. Isn't it neat? The orange accessories are fun, too.
This gorgeous DIY play kitchen is perfect for a darling little girl. This little beauty was sold on Etsy by a talented building duo, Chris and Krista. They no longer sell these but you can take inspiration from this adorable design. I bet you can even make yours using reclaimed furniture.

Another entertainment center-turned-play kitchen? Yes. And yes, you should take design notes from this adorable kiddie kitchen. This has a bit of a modern feel, too, as per the two-door fridge. I love the addition of plants; aren't they darling?
These three play furniture/home appliances are made from salvaged furniture. For those who doubt their skill level, Ashley shares: If you can weld a saw, attach a hinge, and paint…You can totally do this one yourselves. Yep, that pretty much applies to every DIY play kitchen idea here.
Don't buy a play kitchen that can cost you several hundred dollars. Go to Craigslist, buy an entertainment center, and make your own! Check out how Kirby (and the rest of the family) helped make and complete this beautiful play kitchen.
As you can see, repurposing old furniture is one of the popular materials for making a** DIY play kitchen**. I suggest you go that route if you wish to save money.
