Make a Childs Kitchen out of an OLD TV cabinet. This is a great idea. Before & After: Crazy Beautiful Toy Kitchen This is SO amazing. I would have never thought about refurbishing an entertainment system for a child's play kitchen!
I can see making one table and then having a number of bins - cloud sand, colored rice, beans, water, etc. Just keep 'em stacked in the garage and switch out as desired. Cute idea for a water table too.
