"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Bookcase Revamp....Play Kitchen part 4 of 7

Play Kitchen Part 4 :
Oven and Curtain

The shelf just under the sink is now the oven.
I made a curtain for the kitchen...... I could not decided between two different fabrics so I used both and made it reversible so the kitchen can have two different looks. 
Fabric : $3     Tention rod : $2
smaller cake pans and oven pans : found at the thrift store : $0.50 a piece

The kitchen is finished!!! My goal was to find and use as many things at the thrift store as I could. I am soooo pleased with it. I have broken it down into 7 parts to show you some fun and easy things you can do to make your own play kitchen. Once you have found the piece of furniture you want to use (nightstand, bookcase, entertainment center) it comes together pretty fast. Just keep your eyes open for little things that will work....that was the most time comsuming part :)

for parts 1-7

Hey that looks awesome. I too made a play kitchen for my little girl using mostly ikea parts. Check it out when you have a chance.
