What a project!
May have been my favorite so far -
It is definitely K-Cup's favorite!
We started with two matching nightstands that had been sitting unused in our guest room -
To create the "farmhouse sink"...Mr. Lawler removed the top drawer and shortened it's depth.
We also sanded down the sharp edges for a rounded look.
Then he cut a hole in the top of the nightstand for the drawer to slip it down into.
We removed the front board of the bottom drawer and then left the drawer in place for storage.
While Mr. Lawler was working on the cutting - I painted some accessories!
Two squares for the burner bases, some small discs and square dowels for the tops of the burners.
Two knobs and an upside-down "J" for the sink.
For the 2nd nightstand/oven side of the kitchen, Mr. Lawler removed the fronts of the drawers and used scrap wood to create on oven door. I found a clear sheet of plastic for the oven front at hobby lobby (in the quilting dept.) for $1.99 and the hinges and magnet lock at a local hardware store for a few dollars! I also bought some knobs at Hobby Lobby for the oven "dials".
The rest was pretty much all cosmetic!
We added two flat boards to the backs of the nightstands with a few screws.
Painted the outsides turquoise and the sink white.
Painted the inside of the oven silver.
Took one of my waist aprons and attached it under the sink.
Created a garland out of cupcake liners.
Added two chalkboard magnet sheets.
And we added a little towel rack to hang our Ikea pots/pans on.
(Thanks Dad for making that Ikea trip for us!)
For a project that didn't have any plans whatsoever…I think it turned out amazing!
A lot of it was trial and error
(especially the oven door, apparently we have never put hinges on anything!)
but I wouldn't have it any other way :D
Our daughter ADORES playing in her kitchen and I couldn't be happier.
And although I did do a LOT of the work…hearing her say
"my daddy make this for me"
melts my heart!
Hope this can create some inspiration for some and if you have any questions about specifics…
feel free to ask!
Have a happy Wednesday :D
