Made a child's kitchen from a tv/entertainment stand

Well, since Bean is in storage for the winter, I decided I wanted a kitchen for visiting kids. Googled "how to make a child's kitchen" and here is what I made.

Start with almost any type of furniture (wall unit/dresser/tv stand/etc.)

Sink: pink plastic bowl inserted into hole cut on top.
Faucet: The letter "J" from craft store--painted an turned upside down.
Hot/Cold knobs: drawer knobs
Oven top: Baking sheet, wooden craft "swirl" shapes, reflective red paper (for "on" burners)
Knobs for burners and oven: painted baby food jar lids.
Oven: Middle drawer re-hinged to drop down (added webbing as "stops" to protect hands from getting smashed.)
Fridge: behind one of the glass doors
Storage/cabinet: behind the other glass door

Vickie,
When I was a little girl, my grampa made us kitchens, rockers, toy box/settee combos, and even a weird little rolling "table walker" for my little brother.
though the pieces no longer exist, I remember all of them, in great detail.
Bless you. And have fun with the kids.
Sherry

I certainly can't claim the idea as my own! I had looked at store bought kitchens, used kitchens, etc. One day on a whim, I Googled :how to make a child's kitchen. BINGO! Could not believe all the great ideas and pics. People have used everything from entertainment centers to bedside tables!!!!

And depending on what they had around, others have done it for $7 to $150 (that person was making a Pottery Barn type kitchen that costs $800!)

Mine cost about $55 (not counting food and accessories.) I paid $40 for the cabinet---there were cheaper ones--but this one just "spoke" to me. Kinda fit my whole retro/Barbie feel. Girls haven't seen it completed yet. Lucy saw the cabinet in my living room with the (unpainted) swirly burners on top, and immediately started playing with it! They'll see it on Thanksgiving.

We'll be playing while their mom is cooking the turkey! Whoo HOO
