My husband and I made a play kitchen for my daughter's 5th birthday earlier this month.  We didn't have much time to complete it since we were still recovering from Christmas.  You don't see many diy kitchens that haven't been crafted from Ikea parts so I'm proud to say it's all made of scrap wood from the shop my husband works in building trade show booths.  He made the shell and I did everything else.  Everything is wood except the spout which is a PVC plumbing piece with a serger thread cone on the end connected to back of the sink and the oven window is plexiglass.  There's also a light above the sink area.  I had to get pretty creative with the embellishment pieces since we were broke but it gave me a reason to finally use our scroll saw we've had lying around for over a year.  I was a bit intimidated by it but had no choice but to use it.  Now I love it BTW!  I used scrap dowels, craft wood and 2x4's we had lying around to do the handles, the oven top and the curtain rods.  the curtains are a bit short because the fabric was bought for another project and I didn't have the money to go back and purchase extra.  I wasn't going to post this yet because I still need to put a picture in the window.  I plan on taking a picture of somewhere around town to put in it but the weather had been very dreary lately.  I don't know if a fridge will follow, the shows have started back up so my husband is traveling again and won't have much time.  We have a shop out in the garage but I'm afraid to go out there, it creeps me out!  This was definitely a stressful project but I'm very pleased with the outcome and my daughter loves it!  











My beloved Singer 401 back there, the power cord needs replacing, anyone know where I can get one?


Yep, that's the incredible sweater machine you see back there, lol.  No tacky sweaters were made, promise!


Thanks for looking!!

What a kitchen!

As far as the Singer power cord goes, a long time Craftster, Sew-Classic, provides great service. I got my Singer 201-2 power cord replacement from her.... I'll PM you her website.
