I'm sorry for my absents of posts over the last several months! I did want to post a few of my recent creations. My little girl recently celebrated her 3rd birthday. I've been wanting to make a cute kitchen for her out of an old end table. I'm not a big fan of the expensive plastic kitchens sold in stores. I got my husband on board (he is the master woodworker in the family) and my daughter and I went searching for an end table to transform. We got lucky at our first Thrift Store stop and found this beauty:
It had all the charm and cuteness I was looking for. I designed a hutch with my husband that we could attach to the end table. My husband found a dog dish at the Dollar Store that we could use as our sink. He also found an old faucet that we could use. We cut a circle to fit the sink, made the hutch and attached it to the end table. We then striped the old paint off of the end table. I spray painted areas of the kitchen with bright pink spray paint, then painted over the whole kitchen with white paint. I then distressed areas with fine sandpaper to expose the pink. I then finished it off with a sealing coat to protect it. I also used the pink spray paint to color the knobs and details on the doors. I also made my daughter an apron to go along with her kitchen.
She seems to be enjoying it all!
