Upcycling an Entertainment Center

After viewing this blog, Green Your Decor Blog and the hot pink cheetah kitchen featured in Better After Blog example of the stunning kiddie kitchen made out of an unwanted entertainment center.  My wheels started to spin...  My 6 & 8 year old girlies are a little too old for me to start breaking out the paint for a kiddie kitchen and we already have one of the plastic kitchens collecting dust.  What else can I do like this?  I decided to make a doll house for their new American Girl dolls, Julie and Molly.  I searched high and low on Pinterest and Google University and it appears as if not too many people have tried this approach.  I found one computer desk that was repurposed,  http://dolldiaries.com/diy-doll-house-made-from-computer-armoire , of which fed my fascination and gave me hope that it was possible.

Being a young 35, I never purchased the 80's-90's era entertainment center for our own TV... so I began my search on craigslist.  Early in the week, I told him my plans to repurpose an entertainment center for the girls and he looked at me a little crazy.  I don't think he thought I was serious because I had no ability to get such a beast home.  The stars aligned when I found this gem on craigslist, in my own subdivision and the original owner was willing to drop it off!!!   and the story begins...

Isn't she a gem?  
You should have seen my Keith's face when he came home and found her parked in the garage!
