Homemade Play Kitchen

I have plenty of project in mind. Too much for me to realize it in real life. I learned that all I have to do is just… one thing at a time, whenever possible. With the help of JP during weekend, I put up a small play kitchen for lil girl.

First, I have to show you this… the BEFORE.

Then, here’s the AFTER. Sorry for the photos. I can’t wait till the day light.

I added an oven with pull-out door using cardboard covered with wrapping paper, chrome door handle and finish with velcro to attached the door. Then, 2 stoves is done using CD and cup coaster. I used suction hook and mineral bottle cap to create the stove igniter. Then, the cutting pad is made of old mousepad I have. Finally, the washing area is setup with a door hinge hardware that look alike, and finish with my metal bowl as sink. The bottom drawer will be used as storage area for all her cooking tools and ingredient. I didn’t cut a hole to create the sink because I am considering to recycle the same bedside table as her dress up table when she is all done the playing kitchen.

My idea came from a visit in IKEA store. I love this IKEA play kitchen as shown below.

But for a price tag of RM388…Nooooo!

Then, I found many blog with Wonderwomen mommy who build a play kitchen for their daughter. So, I decide I should build one for her. To begin with, I created one with paper box which look like this. I plan to paint and colour it nicely but my lil girl tare it down in no time 😛

The stove area is fully destroyed. The only usable part is the oven area where she bake her cupcake everyday. I took the picture of this stove for the last time before I put it in the recycle area with Issy, and introduce her to the new play kitchen.

This is what she used to do…
