This is the first piece in a play kitchen set I’m making for my daughter Ella (3 1/2). In the works is a base cabinet with a sink and 2 drawers and an attached upper cupboard.

OK, now I feel bad. I gave my granddaughter a cardboard box to use for a stove.
I guess I need to get on the ball.-Thanks for sharing with us

Great looking stove! Brings back fond memories of the one I made for my daughter many years ago. My baby just turned 34 this year. I am sure your daughter will have a lot of fun playing with her stove. Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Outstanding! Ever since I saw the extraordinary prices of the kitchen in Pottery Barn Kids catalogs, I’ve been thinking that my niece would love a homemade version.

How did you do the microwave control panel? What did you use for the rails in the oven?

Really great job!

Answer to MarkWilk’s Q’s
the microwave panel is a piece of printed off white paper with the control panel design made using Microsoft Word and then laminated to the wood. – notice the time on the clock – it is a bit blurry but since this was a Christmas gift for my daughter – the time is 12:25 – none of my family got it right away.

The oven rack is simply a piece of closet rack – the white systems they sell at home Depot and Lowes – cut to fit – it slides on a couple pieces of wood with dowels in the slots of the rack to keep it on track and keep it from falling out.

I actually decided to build this and the piece I am working on now after seeing how much similar sets cost at Pottery Barn Kids
