What These Parents Did With Old Entertainment Centers Is So Cool!

Imgur user sixstringhook and his wife wanted to make their son a unique play kitchen for his birthday. They started by buying an old solid wood entertainment center from Goodwill.
A lot of the parts for the mini kitchen, like the faucet, came from a local Re-store for used home renovation parts.
We love that it looks so realistic and because they recycled old parts it was also good for both the earth and the wallet. It’s a (triple) win-win-win.
One of the coolest parts of this play kitchen may be the “burners” they made using Electroluminescent wires.
He says, “This stuff is pretty cool. It doesn’t get hot and runs on a battery controller. I routed trenches for the wire on the underside of the range top and after running the wire, screwed a piece of plywood on to cover them so they cannot be seen from inside the oven.” He bought the wire from Amazon.
His son couldn’t be happier playing with his new kitchen!
Way to go sixstringhook! Here’s another cool kitchen play set build using old furniture. This one comes from Instructable user rmkershner, who used an old family entertainment center to make a play kitchen instead of paying $800 for one they liked from a retail store. Plus he says, “I feel like its better quality and it means more.” Looks like it was a fun project to do, too!
With some decorations and toys, the play set was all done. It’s a beauty!
