I bought this children's kitchen sink at Savers a few of weeks ago and I finally got around to fixing it up today. I decoupaged the backboard with scrapbook paper and sewed the little retro curtains and repainted the cupboard door white. I want to make a really fabulous play set for the glamchildren someday for the "playhouse" that will "someday" be built in our backyard. But until then, I got one of the cardboard boxes that we used to move with, glued baby food bottles on the bottom for legs then painted that all red, then I cut a splash board out of more cardboard, spray painted it all white and glued two large can lids (painted silver) on the top for burners. I used two washers and a knob I found in my stash for finishing touches. (look, you can store all the play dishes in the box!...I'm a genius!) ha-ha
Here's how the little kitchen looks in our TV room. I purchased the kids game table at a thrift store and replaced the adult size legs with shorter, kid sized legs.

Daisy and Carma squealed with delight when I brought the "kitchen" in the room today. That made all the "racking my brain to figure out how to make stuff" worth it!!!

Very cute! I'll bet you'd like a blog I recently discovered. It's knock-offwood.com and the writer makes and posts furniture plans. Lately I've seen plans for playhouses, and play furniture. It's pretty cool! If only I could convince my husband to do my bidding while I sit around and nurse!
