and many other fabulous examples of entertainment centers turned into play kitchens on Pinterest . I fell in love, I needed to make it...my creative need is very controlling sometimes ;0)
So I mentined it to my Sis-in-Law and she said that they had promised "B" a play kitchen but hadn't found one for her yet. So Operation Play Kitchen began.
We didn't find an affordable entertainment center until the beginning of April but when we did, it was just the right price...Free! Kevin had gone to the Thrift store and there was a bunch of free furniture going to the dump. He snagged it up and brought it home. So for the next 3 days this is what we did. Curt (B's dad) began taking it all apart .
He then cut a hole to accommodate my old Crock Pot bowl. Bingo! We have a sink. He also took off one door and turned the other small door into an oven door. So far still free.
Then it was Prime Time.We hauled it in the house and I primed all night.
Then paint...Oh Yeah!
The next day I started to plan the "window".
Curt installed a brand new faucet and it made the sink look perfect. We painted the inside of the fridge white and the inside of the oven black.
Our original plan was to paint the door panels with chalkboard paint or magnetic paint but the store was sold out. So we just went white with it.
Kevin cut a piece of glass from an old picture we had in the garage and added window trim to make the window just that much more real.
I am quite pleased with the way my painting turned out, in fact I would like to have this view from my kitchen window.
I made a couple curtains and a pot holder, Curt hung the hooks,a towel hoop, put a towel rod on the oven door and added new handles to the fride doors. Kevin built the little stove top and those metal stove knobs came off of his old BBQ. Curt used appliance paint on the white part of the stove top so it is shiny like a real stove top.
Here it is right at home in B's room. Eek!!! So cute.
When I was taking these photos she said "What kind of music do you want to listen to? Country?" and she pushed the button on her "stereo", which fits perfectly on her window sill. :0)
