GREAT IDEA! As a new teacher, I know I am not going to have a lot of money to go out and spend. If I get a kindergarten classroom, I know I cannot afford an expensive play kitchen; therefore, I can go to Goodwill and buy an old entertainment center and make my own (with boyfriend's help ofcourse, haha). Plus, I can add my own touch! :)
Before and after: handmade toy kitchen from old entertainment center. I cant begin to express how clever these grandparents are, and crafty, to make this beautiful toy out of an old piece of unwanted furniture. And its a hundred times better quality than the plastic play kitchens you can buy in the store. way to go!
As soon as I can get Gibby a new dresser, his old one will be converted to a dress-up closet like this. Maybe a little more co-ed than girly, so Gib's fireman coat and other boy stuff won't be forced into a girly fru fru closet!
Ikea dress up station. The guy did it for 100 dollars but idk how he spent that much. Just get a shelf and use some pvc piping as a curtain rod for the drapes. Get some cutesy fabric for the drapes and voila. Probably would cost less than $25 that way.
