If you have an old nightstand that you find useless and you are uncertain about it then instead of throwing it, recycle it into a cute play kitchen for your kids. To do this you simply have to give it a fresh coat of paint and the rest depends upon how creative you want to be or the materials available. For example for the cook top of the kitchen you can use old DVDs and for the sink you can use a steel bowl. You can fix all the things in holes made on the top surface of the kitchen. Add some hooks and knobs too to give it a realistic look.
You can also lit the oven from the inside with a bulb. So it is the time to recycle the nightstand with you. Get going!
