For Christmas last year I wanted to make my little girl a play kitchen. I always wanted one when I was little. I had seen SEVERAL big plastic kitchen for a GREAT deal before this, but could never convince my Dear Husband that my boys needed one! ;o) Then I got a girl. I decided she HAD to have play kitchen. Since my honey didn't like the big plastic ones, I decided I'd make a little one all on my own! (He couldn't make me get rid of it if I had made it, right?)
I went to a thrift shop and happened to find all this the same day for only about $10 for all of it! It was half-price day! I couldn't have been more excited!
I grabbed a scrap piece of wood we had lying around and mounted it to the back of the night stand and screwed the shelf to it. I cut a hole for the $1 pie plate for a sink and glued on 2 old cd's for burners.
I screwed the spice rack on the side and painted everything white. I painted the inside of the shelf green with a little extra paint leftover from the accent wall in her room.
I bought a letter "J" from JoAnn's for about $1 with my 40% off coupon. I spray painted it silver and mounted it upside down for the faucet. I bought a wooden drawer handle, sawed it in half, sprayed them silver and mounted them to make the hot and cold for the faucet.
Also, the night stand had a drawer originally. I took it apart, put the drawer bottom on top of the braces from the drawer to make a shelf. Then I put the drawer front on hinges to make it an oven and added a magnetic closure and VOILA!!!
A CUTE UPCYCLED PLAY KITCHEN THAT WILL LAST MANY YEARS!!!
My little girl LOVES it! I'm so glad too! I made tons of felt food for her and she plays with it every day!
Now that's my kind of makeover!
