Nightstand Redux

In this economy, people are getting creative when it comes to big ticket kid items and toys. Kitchen and workbench play sets from makers like Fisher-Price and Little Tikes will run you about $75 a piece. But with a little time, elbow grease, and  an old nightstand or side table you have around the house (or pick up from a local thrift store), you can make one yourself for your budding chef or architect for around $30. You can even choose colors and patterns to match your little one’s bedroom or playroom- and chances are, your handiwork will turn out MUCH cuter than anything you can find at the store! Just check out these examples from some very creative bloggers:

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
