DIY- Play Kitchen

So I found a picture of a play kitchen made from a night stand and had no other choice but to make one of our own. I could not get it out of my mind.
The next day or two I went to DI, Savers, looking around at garage sales and no luck. I had this image of the perfect looking dresser to destroy and could not find it anywhere.
So i picked up some pots and small pans for $2.00


Then the next day Jacob called me and sent a picture of two different dresser things and her brought one home for a whopping $10.00. He had stopped by a savers is SLC and found our new project!




That night we started working and had it all put together.
Ill let the pictures show you the steps.
took the top off. to use as dividers for between the oven & microwave and a divider for between the two sides.

the shelf that was already inside the desk, we moved down about 2 inches so Xelly could reach it better.
That became the top of the kitchen with a "back splash" around it so toys would not fall off.
Jacob cut the sides to be slanted so it didnt feel as boxed in
A missing picture step is when we cut out the sink. just took a jig saw and cut a circle!

Xelly and I went and looked at colors. Xelly picked out her favorite pink color and that is what we painted it! Primed it white so the wood would not soak up the pink color. then we painted it pink!!

primed

pink!!!

Then we went to Walmart and picked out some fabric to make the curtain. my first time sewing a curtain. not to shabby huh!?

We liquid nailed the sick on so xelly could not pull it out. The sink is just a small mixing bowl.
Then painted on the microwave and oven.
Jacob bolted the hinges on because I could not get it right after trying 10 times

Walah! Now it is inside and a rad new toy!!
I just need to find a faucet!
The fun part is you can make anything out of well... anything!!
This is one of the things on my craft list! I can now move onto finishing up the piano!

desk- $10.00
2 bowls- $2.00
2 small pans-$4.00
Pot- $2.00
