Play Kitchen from a Bedside Table

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!" We Three Mothers play kitchen before
