I'm not finished yet. I need to take about 3mm off of the oven door in order for it to close.
But everything else is pretty much done, So I felt like showing you!

I need to paint the inside of the fridge's door.

Yes, this is a dog bowl. The faucet is a real one taken on ebay for realllllly cheap! All the little ustensils were bought at the dollar store.

Burners are old CD which I've drawn a swirl with sharpies on. Buttons were old washer buttons found were I found the TV cabinet (the guy gave them to me...)

I painted this backyard scene and made the (tiny) drapes

Here's the before shot:

what I still need to do/find:
A grid
something to make an oven element
long enough screws to screw the burners' buttons.

She's supposed to get "stainless steal" pots and dishes for Christmas from her god-parents.

OMG! This is adorable.  I would cry when my child outgrew this if I had made it.  Love your burners, very creative.
Some ideas:
Not sure what type of grid you need, but what about a cookie cooling rack?
Oven element: Maybe some red pipe cleaners.
Burner knobs: Use bolts.  Make the holes slightly larger than the diameter of the bolt, and then use bolts 1/16"-1/8" longer than you need to give them some room to actually be turned.
WoW, I would love to see what you come up with!

Thanks for the kind comments everybody Smiley
My FIL came up with a red wire thingie that will be perfect as an element Smiley
I also have a minie-mouse clock (ew) that I can turn into a lovely "Weasley style" clock when I'm done with all the other xmas gifts.
I'm still seeking for a blackboard to put on the fridge, and something that can look like a spice rack to put next to the window.

I can also almost officially say that this kitchen will be used by more then 1 child in the near future! Cheesy
