I built this Kids Kitchen for my 2 year old Daughter for Christmas. Modeled it after a few i found at Pottery Barn but I wasn’t about to spend 700 on a kids kitchen.
I put the last coat of paint on this Christmas eve with about 7 hours to spare til Christmas morning, didn’t help that I was laid up for two weeks due to illness so I was way behind. Luckily it was dry by Christmas Morning, still have some touch-up paint to get done and some other little things.
Materials is 1/2 MDF, Primed with Oil Based Primer and painted with Oil Based Paint.
Lessons Learned: I’m never using 1/2” material again, it was a pain to find hinges that would work with 1/2 material and ended up having to use ones that I didn’t care for.
Wife cut the burners out using her Silhouette and black vinyl (She is a big scrap booker so she has all the cool toys) knobs are hand made as well as the faucet. Bought the handles from Rockler they fit very nice with the retro look i was going for.
Best part was watching the look on her face and knowing that my 1 year old will be able to use this as well as my future grand kids (Long way away). Hope all the lumberjocks had a great Christmas. Thanks for taking a look at my project.
