Last Christmas we searched around for a play kitchen for Hadley and not finding one we liked (under $200) Jason set out to make one himself. The entire project came in under $25.
Start with an end table or nightstand picked up at your local thrift shop or yard sale. We found this one at Goodwill for around $10:
We also found a set of coasters perfect for burners and a stainless steel bowl for the sink. The knobs we already had on hand. At The Rebuilding Center we picked up the oven handle along with a faucet.
Jason spray painted it, cut out a hole for the sink, and attached the coasters and knobs. For the oven door he connected the fronts of the two bottom drawers and attached hinges to the bottom:
Jason finished it over the weekend and Hadley’s been cooking up a storm:
This is darling! What an adorable idea! It's so much cuter (and not to mention cheaper) than anything I've seen in a store. And it's one of a kind! I stumbled upon your blog and I'm glad I did. Thanks for the oven inspiration! ~Lisa

This turned out awesome! You guys did a great job! Love it and I'm sure Hadley will too!
Jason-I'm impressed! So clever and simply adorable! Loved the video and can't wait for Hadley to fix Papa Ron and I some yummy pancakes!

Hadley took such care to use the hot pad. And she wanted to make sure her momma got a really good taste. We better get out there and pick lots of blueberries since that seems to be Hadley's favorite ingredient. 🙂
Here's to hours of fun! Thanks for sharing these moments.
