How proud am I of this?
Earlier in the year I was inspired by people who transformed existing furniture into play kitchens. This nightstand has been kicking around my house for 3 years. It was a freebee and therefore ripe for renovation. It started its life looking like this:
As you can see it has four burners
and a deep oven perfect for making playdough pies.
And what does every tomato-loving Turtle need? A new timer, of course!
Our entertainment center (which has always been used as Toy Central) is unergoing renovations as well. A few final touches and Turtle will have a full-fledged kitchen!
I lightly sanded the stand & coated it with primer. Next time I paint furniture, I will make sure to use the right tool to get a nice, thick coat of primer down. After two coats of paint, I can still see a bit of the wood underneath. Oh well, I'm not being perfect! I thought about replacing the hardware on the drawer, but it does the job. The burners are sticky-backed glitter foam. I thought about painting the burners on, but that would have required buying paint. Besides, the foam was faster. I haven't put a door on the oven yet because I haven't decided how I want to do it. Turtle doesn't seem to mind so it will do for now. If you think this is neat, you should check out some of these kitchens!
