It started out as two cabinets left over from when we built the house. They messed up on our kitchen cabinet measurements, so we ended up with several extra cabinets.
*the black piece on the top cabinet is the start of the stove top
If you're interested, this is how we did it:
- screwed the two cabinets together
- used the jigsaw to create a hole for the sink to sit in
- installed a divider between the oven and the sink
- drilled a hole for the faucet
- screwed the feet to the bottom
- screwed the oven door on the front
- screwed the oven knobs on the front
sink bowl- stainless mixing bowl from my kitchen
black "ceramic" stove top- sheet of duct tape from Target
burners- painted wood plaques from Hobby Lobby
peel and stick tile- Menard's
utensil hook- key hook from Target
curtain- made from leftover fabric from my kitchen window treatments and tension rod I already had
oven door- made by my neighbor out of MDF and plexiglass for FREE
oven handle- cabinet pull from Lowe's
oven knobs- replacement knob kit from Menard's (see first picture)
I love that the kitchen isn't plastic. It matches my kitchen cabinets! It functions well, and I hope it is something that she will want to keep for her children. Overall, I spent about $60 for everything needed. That's still about half of what the low end of the plastic kitchens cost!
This Christmas, Santa is bringing more play food so we can have more proper dinner parties.
Easier Than I Thought!
