Cookin’ Up Some Cuteness

She’s got the oven mit on.  My daughter is about to make a scrumptious meal.  No biggie, she’s quite a good cook.

Check out the cute kitchen I made for her birthday.  I’m super thrilled with the way it turned out.  But first…

The “before” pictures.  I found this winning cabinet at the local Goodwill for just $8.  It even has wheels on the bottom, which I was pretty thrilled about.

Mr. Everything helped me cut a hole in the top for the sink (a silver bowl).

I used Annie Sloan chalk paint (Provence color) to paint the cabinet, plus a homemade mix of gray, and the off-white color is Country Grey.  I bought the small silver bowl at Walmart for $5, and the utility faucet on the clearance shelf at Home Depot for $15.

The stove burners are furniture Sliders and the stove knobs are painted wooden drawer pulls.  We drilled the holes slightly too big so that the knobs can twist and rotate, like the knobs on a stove.

Mr. Everything also helped me drill those holes in the side so Brother can pretend to fix Em’s kitchen with his cool tools and toy power drill.

A few weeks later I found the taller cabinet and painted it to make it into her toy fridge.  It was the perfect size!

I love the fridge handle, a lift-up pull!  Perfect.

I just love how this kitchen set turned out, and love that my Em enjoys it so much.  But enough of my creative drabblings…it’s dinner time with Miss Em.  She’s cookin’ up something good.
