Play Kitchen Christmas Project

Submitted by mccolhl on Sun, 01/06/2013 - 19:44

I searched the web for the perfect play kitchen for my daughter for Christmas, but I could not find one I liked. After reviewing the plans, I thought this one was worth a shot. I could not be happier with the results.

A few notes...
I did change the location of the hinges for the oven door to the side and included a magnetic closure. I was afraid my 18-month old daughter would stand on the plexiglass if the door opened down.

It took me longest to find the "eyes" for the oven. I lucked up on some silver coasters at Target that did the trick.

My husband and I enjoyed working on the project together at night in the two weeks before Christmas, so I got a little plaque engraved for the back of the oven that includes our daughter's name and says "made with love by Mommy & Daddy Christmas 2012"

Thanks Ana-White!
