Hi, I made this play kitchen for my daughter's 3rd Birthday. I got my inspiration from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=142233.150 I saw her kitchen and had to try my own!
 I had so much fun making it and thinking about what should go where. I used to think she had a lot of felt food. Now I have to make more so her fridge doesn't look so empty!
The sink and stove top.

The full view. Note the cookies baking in the oven!
Inside the dishwasher and oven.
I still need to get a long handle for the fridge but I live in a small town so it will have to wait.

The pantry

Wow!  She has more storage than I do in my "real" kitchen.  Of course, there's a good chance she cooks more than I do, too.  Great job, I bet she has LOTS of fun playing there!

Wow, my jaw dropped when I saw this kitchen. Your kid is very lucky, and also this kitchen looks good as a piece of furniture. Wow, and all the details, and the dishwasher! And it looks all really sturdy, too. I wish we had room for a play kitchen like that. Great job!

that's a great Kitchen!!!!  way better then 99% of the store bought ones... and that 1% would surely cost 100x the price of that one I'm sure.
Makes me wish I had an old TV unit to refurbish Smiley

WOW! This is one of those "why didn't i think of that" moments for me. Truly outstanding. I am making felt foods for my 3 yr old and i think this might be something i could make to go with it. Smaller of course. Thanks for posting! Def hitting this rocks! Grin

Oh! a dishwasher!! How clever! I'm gonna just put a curtain under the sink...
That pantry is really cool! So much storage... Make me think that I'll need to put some shelves on the side of the cabinet.
Oh, I just notice she had her own telephone hehe! gotta find one of that too.

If I can suggest you something, put a "touch" lamp in the oven, so she'll have some light when something's cooking Smiley

Really nice job! can't wait to start on mine now!


For those interested in making a play kitchen, I've reassembled my favorite DIY play kitchen of the mommy blogsphere :

What a great idea for the oven light! I even have one sitting in my drawer! I am already planning to put up a light with a switch in the sink area but the oven one is happening right NOW! Thanks!

Yay!

I'm about to pierce to whole for my sink - Which is a dog bowl instead of a mixing bowl, I just need another hour for my drill battery to be full.


You'll need to post action shots for this !
