Pink Play Kitchen Featured At Bob Vila

When I was just a young pup - so long ago now I don't even remember when that was - Brawn and I would tune in to channel 13 and watch This Old House.

That was long before DISH, Direct TV, cable, the internet, and the plethora of home improvement shows.

Norm and Bob showed folks the tips and tricks to do DIY the right way.  Their show was how I learned what dovetailing drawers was, and how tedious renovating an old house could be.

Taking an old house and breathing new life into it was something Brawn and I always wanted to do, but we built three new homes, and instead breathed new life into our family by adding two kids at each house.

If you do the math, that's 3 houses, x's 2 kids at each = a total of 6 kids right?  I wonder if we had built four houses if we'd have eight kids?  Yikes!

Norm retired not too long ago, but Bob still maintains his presence in the home improvement world at

Some of you might recall from my apothecary cabinet IKEA hack, that while I do love a challenge, I'm not the type who is going to beg for votes for anything.

I'll save begging for votes for when I run for president.

However I do like to win things, and I have no problem pointing my readers in the direction of a contest that a project of mine is in, and asking you to vote for your favorite, even if it isn't mine.

If you'd like to see all the budget friendly ways I used to turn this garage sale nightstand into a play kitchen, you can click {here}.

A hint.... it was a very inexpensive makeover, with things like a garage sale faucet, free dials, and dollar store apple slicers that became the burners.

The nightstand turned play kitchen isn't the only cute entry, but both the pink princess and myself hope the nightstand makeover will garner your vote as a favorite.
