Before you get rid of that old night stand, think about recycling it… into a toy range for your children! Here’s how…
First of all, the night stand we chose for this project comes from the Cosmos collection. Another, more traditional, night stand would also have given the range a unique style, but I liked the look and colour of this model for my little household appliance!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pieces of MDF, particleboard or stiff cardboard.
- 2 flat hinges
- 1 suspension arm
- Decorative paper, e.g., the kind used for scrapbooking
- Printed image of an oven door glass
- 4 printouts of burner covers or red and black foam
- 5 plastic bottle tops or any other round, flat objects.
1. To make a new back for the range, take a piece of MDF, particleboard or stiff cardboard and cut it to the right size. If you don’t have the right equipment at home, you can get it cut in a hardware store. The piece needs to be the same width as the night stand, but 12 to 18 inches longer than the height so you have a back guard for the range.
