This is the first of several post about a larger than normal project my wife and I took on. For Christmas, we decided to secretly remodel an unused room into a play room for our kids. It took a lot of time, energy, and creativity to bring it all together without the kids knowing.
There were several smaller projects involved and this first post is about the play kitchen. I found the plan at one of my all time favorite DIY blogs: Ana White.
I started with the fridge. Using some 3/4″ MDF I cut the pieces for the fridge.
It went together quickly. Modeling it after the fridge in our real kitchen, it has a bottom drawer freezer and dual doors for the fridge. Jess talked me out of running power for a light and a water line for an ice/water dispenser.
The other two components are the stove/oven and the sink. Both are almost identical. One just has the oven door while the other a curtain and shelves.
Abby actually negotiated for the fixtures herself not knowing what it was for. She actually talked the guy at the Restore down to $5 from $10.
And here is the final project. Jess, of course, picked the colors and fabric and made the curtain.
