the kid kitchen
Somehow I forgot to show you the kitchen that we made for Cade's birthday present....last month. Cade has been into cooking lately and asked for a kitchen. I new I wanted to make one, but went back and forth on whether to build it from scratch or to make one out of a nightstand. We finally decided that since he is a boy and this kitchen phase may not last long we would go with the nightstand option.
We started with an old nightstand that was in my parents garage. After lots of sanding, painting, cutting, laying the tile, more painting, and a few coats of polyurethane I'm trilled with how it turned out. The subway tile backsplash is my FAV detail.
-we used a piece of 3/4" plywood from our scrap stash to make the over door front and the backsplash
-oven door - attached with 2 regular door hinges
-backsplash tiled with subway tile and grouted
-spray painted with Krylon Emerald Green and then 2 coats of Polyurethane
-facet - an old brass faucet that I spray painted
-sink - a stainless steel bowl from my kitchen
-burners - 2 circles painted with black paint
-fabric -attached using a wooden dowel and 2 cup hooks
-chalkboard attached using caulk
Total $ spent - just under $50
