Santa's elves have been putting in a lot of overtime hours in my basement. Look what they've been up to.
Before: An entertainment center I got from the online classifieds for $15
After: A Child Sized Kitchen
I used this tutorial as a guide
Here are some close ups of the elements:
The sink is made from a buffet steam tray. The faucet was a yard sale find.
The counter top is modpodged fabric. Doesn't it look graintey?
The stove. It is the original door with a window cut out and plexiglass added. I attached the plexiglass with E600. The burners are formula can lids. The knobs are things I found at a thrift store, I have no idea what their real purpose is. I got a whole bag of them for $.50 (email me if you'd like me to send some to you. I have a TON left over). The oven door handle is from Ikea, the pot holder is from Ikea, and so are the pots and pans.
Aren't these the cutest? I found them at Sears. Here's the mixer, but I don't see the toaster online.
The window scene was a print from a picture I got at a thrift store for $1. It was modpodged to the back of the kitchen. Then I bought another $1 frame. I painted the frame and glued it around the picture. I used an 18" curtain rod from WM.
Here is the total cost breakdown:
