About Project

This cute little stove is easy to make and will thrill little ones for years to come. Solid wood. Can also be used as a nightstand or a play dishwasher.

You will first need to construct a <a href="http://ana-white.com/2009/10/grace-playhouse-kitchen-sink_9146.html">sink from these plans.</a>  This plan is simply for a door to convert the sink to a stove.

Instructions

Step 1

Build the sink.

Step 2

Use 2 1/2" nails to nail through the sides of the 1x2 into the edge of the 1x4, as shown above. Nail on all four sides. You can also use pocket hole screws (recommended) or carefully predrill a pilot hole with a countersink bit and attach. Not comfortable with that? A few cheap brackets could do the trick too.

Step 3

Drill a hole in the plexigalss where each screw will go to prevent the plexiglass from cracking. Then use 3/4" screws to screw the plexiglass to the door frame as shown above.

Many of our brilliant readers use mirror clips to hold the plexiglass in place.

Step 4

Add the handle as shown above. Be creative!
