I am most excited about this:Bert's Furniture in Sanford to be precise) that I have since transformed into full-service play kitchen.
I started by repainting the entire piece white using some paint I already had on hand. I left the countertop and shelf as is to maintain some of the original character.
I recently replaced the knobs on Dan's dresser so I used the old ones to create the stove top and oven knobs and to ensure maximum fun I made sure they spun in place. I picked up the refrigerator and oven handles from Lowes for $10.
For the oven window and ice maker I used chalkboard paint leftover from these projects.
I wanted to maintain the kid-scale of the kitchen and I didn't want to spend too much money on the faucet (nothing new there), this meant an adult-sized faucet was out. After browsing the plumbing isle at Lowes with some burley men, who fittingly sported plumbers cracks, I stumbled upon some chrome plated brass pipes which I glued together and used a chrome plated flange to make sure it would securely stay in place. This solution cost just $12. The faucet knobs are also from Dan's dresser and they too spin.
Dan used his reciprocating saw to cut the hole for the recessed sink. It wasn't a pretty hole but the stainless steel dog dish I found at the Dollar General (although it cost $3) fit just fine.
The stove burner is a $4 trivet that I covered with some plexiglass so that smaller toys wouldn't fall through. I used Goop Adhesive to keep the sink, faucet and burner in place, very strong and dries clear.
