DIY: Play Kitchen Part 2 (From Bali With Love)

Here's another DIY Play Kitchen that's just too cute for words! Rachel from Vintage Songbird made this cute kitchen for her 2 year old daughter out of an old nightstand! See how Rachel did it below.

I re-purposed wood from the nightstand wherever possible, except the back needed to be a sturdier surface for the shelf, so my husband picked up a piece of birch.

The break-down:

Thrifted: bowl for sink, salt & pepper shakers, nightstand.
Bought: Wood letter 'J' for faucet, acrylic paints for knobs/burners, hinges/magnetic clasp hardware for oven door, hooks for utensils, tension rod for curtain, picture frame, scalloped trim for chalkboard, piece of birch.
Free/already had: white paint, knobs, blank cd's for stove burners, chrome hanger, vintage towel, fabric for curtain (Watercolor Floral in Darcey collection by Anna Griffin), chalkboard paint from my sister, handle for oven door, tap light, vintage salad picture from pilllpat's photostream.
All in all, I'd say we spent between $50-$60. And a lot of time out in the freezing garage!"

  1. I found a night stand last weekend for $20 to do this project for my granddaughter. I am so excited and can't wait to get started on it. It will be for her 2nd birthday. Looking forward to all the fun it will bring to the household.

    Thanks for the idea.
