Play Kitchen

10 Aug

Since I saw this post, I wanted to make a play kitchen for my little girl.  I decided it will be the perfect gift for her 3rd birthday.  After I bought the television cabinet, I planned for days/weeks.  And here is the before and the after photos.

Play Kitchen Before and After

And here is how we did it…

We decided to take out the divider (between the TV and the shelves).  For the back, we used old knotty pine ceilings (we took it out when renovate our house).  Hubby made the hole for the sink. Then I primed the whole cabinet.


Then 2/3 coats of soft blue paint.  The inside of the oven was painted black.  Hubby did the tiling and grouting.


For the shelves, I re-use an old cd rack that we don’t use anymore.  I took of all the CD dividers and made space for the microwave.


The stove is a wooden placemat and the burners is wooden coasters (I bought those at a craft store).  The stove knobs I got for free from a Appliance Repair shop.  After a lot of cleaning, it was like new.  The oven door is a piece of wood that hubby had cut to size.  He cut out the hole and insert a piece of Perspex.

The sink is a stainless steel dog bowl.  The faucet is from our old bathroom.

And then the fun part…  the decorating.  I just loved that.  The two baskets is for the food and baking stuff.
