My sister in law found a bunch of pictures where people were converting old small cabinets or entertainment centers into little “kitchens”. She asked if I could do that for my niece. Being a sucker for my niece and always willing to spoil her I said sure. After realizing that everyone thought their old cabinets and entertainment centers were made of gold, I went to the building center and bought a sheet of 3/4 plywood. I stoked up the wood stove in the shop and went to work on a Saturday morning. I edged all of the plywod with 3/4 by 3/4 wood strips. the Sink is a brand new dog bowl. the microwave door has number stickers and a peice of black plastic for the window. The oven door has a piece of Plexiglass in it to see if the cakes and such are done and is hinged on the side ( my niece is only two, we don’t need her standing on it and falling. The burners are peices of felt contact cemented on. I went to a local appliance dealer and he let me take some knobs off of units he was about to recycle. My niece absolutely loves it and has been making things for everyone and anyone who comes since Christmas.

This is something I will be copying for my granddaughters. They love to “cook”. Great design, and I love the avacado green color.

The dog bowl idea for the sink was very creative. I wish my niece was younger so I could make one of these now! Very well executed…great job!

Have your say...
