Play Kitchen from a Bedside Table

We Three Mothers play kitchen before

Mandy of We Three Mothers writes, “About a month ago, Cooper was having a lot of fun playing restaurant and grocery store owner in the play room with our Melissa and Doug food items and Kiwi Crate grocery apron. I’ve been wanting a little kitchen for Lily and Cooper for a while, but am not a fan of the plastic ones they sell, and the wooden ones everywhere are pretty pricey.  Alas! Cooper and I decided to turn this little table into an oven!”

Dresser Makeover with Homemade Chalk Paint

Life Created dresser before

Stephanie of Life Created says, “I had just attended a “vintage” sale and had been gawking the many chalk paint creations: frames, side tables, buffets and dressers…when I decided to stop at Goodwill.  I walked around nonchalantly and this pepto-bismol-colored creation called my name.”  With visions of chalk paint dancing through her head, she immediately brought it and took it home.

Amazing Armoire Makeover

Thrifty Treasures armoire before

Sara from Thrifty Treasures scored this armoire through Freecycle.  That’s right, someone gave this sturdy piece up for free!  It had great lines and was in pretty decent shape, but Sara couldn’t resist the urge to give it a new look.

French Provincial Dresser Refabbed

Martha Leone Design dresser before

At Martha Leone Designs, Martha says, “I found a listing on craigslist for two dressers and a buffet. When I went to the house to pick up the items, the owner showed me this pathetic dresser hidden away in the basement. The drawers were broken, the dresser was covered with grime, and reeked of smoke. He threw it in as a bonus to my other purchases.”

Pretty DIY Baskets

Pam blogs at diy Design Fanatic, where she claims that necessity is the mother of invention.  “I looked for at least 2 months for a basket for our daughter’s room. I looked at Marshall’s, HomeGoods, Ikea, TJ Maxx, Target, but didn’t have any luck. None of the baskets were the right size.”  One day, walking out of Trader Joe’s, she spotted an empty box that was the perfect size, and was desperate enough to bring it home!
