My daughter loves "cooking" so we made her this play kitchen for Christmas. I had so much fun making it that it was worth it even if she never plays with it. Of course, she's been playing with it since yesterday morning.

I ALMOST did the exact same thing to my daughter's fridge doors! I thought about it a lot, but just didn't have the resources or the time to get it by Christmas to do the doors....maybe I will now though :) I love the addition you did to the stove it is adorable and awesome! I also love the little knobs you have on the front of the stove - what did you use for them? Would love to see a picture of the top of the stove as well as the actual sink. I like to see how others do theirs so if I want to make another one for a friend I can have other ideas :)

Fantastic job!

It looks amazing and I am sure your daughter loves it! I was thinking of doing the magnetic paint on my daughter's fridge and now wish I had after seeing your kitchen. I think we got the same pulls :)

I love the personal touches you created! Did you scale the pieces up or use original dimensions? And I HAVE to know how you did the extension of counter space on the oven with the shelves! That is exactly what I have been looking for. A girl can't have to much counter space at any age!
