You can be the coolest grandma ever, if this is what you give your little granddaughter!

Can’t beat free old RCA Hi-Fi. This sat in an old musty basement for years.

Drilled holes for sink, faucet & burners.

One coat of Kiltz! I removed the decorative speaker cover in the left side of the unit. I had awesome idea for its use!

Remember the decorative framed speaker cover from the left side of unit? I glued complementary color fabric to the back and mounted it to the middle of the unit, giving it a window appearance. Local thrift shop had large silver bowl & used faucet. I found 3 old electric burners from an appliance repair shop that give them to me free! They were dingy looking so I slapped a coat of black on them to make shiny new burner look. I added towel rack with contrasting fabric & garage sale utensils. Love the results!
