My Little Gems took a $6.50 nightstand:

And turned it into a spiffy kitchen for the kids to play with:

Sharla, who made the play kitchen, says the “sink faucet is an upside down wooden “J” and the hot and cold knobs are little wooden people you can buy from a craft store-painted silver and screwed in so they turn.” She put the curtains on with velcro, got the silver bowl from a thrift store, made the salt and pepper by gluing pieces together from the craft store… lots of clever ideas here.

This is a great use for one of those old ugly nightstands. Every thrift store is full of them.
