About Play Kitchens......

It's what I decided to make for Bébé Tattoo for this year's holiday.
With the play food and everything (that will deserve a post of its own...)

So, officially, this is an Inspiration Post!

I have to mention first, this play kitchen gold mine, Out of the Crayon Box, and her fabulous idea that I'm looking forward to, Build With Me: Cute & Thrifty Play Kitchen -In Just Six Weeks.
I seriously consider the fact that she might have been able to read my mind.

Aren't those gorgeous?
And this girl doesn't just make awesome play kitchen... She sells them and give her benefit to charitative organization. It's my kind of lady. Oh, she does them on budget, too. So go on and check her posts, if you are like me and love steps pictures, including before and afters!

Now, thanks to Kimba's DIY Day, I ran into this lovely play kitchen from Mommy Words.

I more then agree with the post's tittle; Who Needs Pottery Barn?

Why it won my heart?
First, it's RED. Second, it was built from scratch. Third, it cost 150$. and last but very not least, it has running water. How cool is that?

The pottery barn one, around 800$ without shipping fee.

This one comes from Our Sweet life.

She went to the salvage yard and got what she found fitting best. Found a faucet, re-used paint.... Total cost? 59$! Here for all the details.

But here comes one of my favorite, for it's cleverness. Erin, from Sutton Grace took an entertainment center and turn it into this:

She explains it all here. With Before and Afters. That is were I'm heading!
I purchased the unit this afternoon (40$) and I got free stove buttons :) Unit and Sketch will be at the end of the post.

But on to the next inspiration kitchen....

Yellow Play Kitchen from Mamma Americana

She took 2 straight night stands, and she flipped a chest for the fridge. The rest is mdf. She explains it all here.

Blue kitchen from Celebrate Play!

This one has a double sink!
The lady hired some professional to built it, and she did the rest. I love the color! Details here!

Now that you've been loaded with awesomeness, I'll show you the piece of furniture I chose:

See the potential?

...And a rough not to scale sketch...

So please, someone, give me pale blue and sliver spray paint, a drill, wood and some screws.... Can't wait to start!


  1. Holy cow! What a great cabinet! Let the building begin!

  2. Oh I think it will turn out awesome! Please send pics when it is done!

  3. Ahhhhhh! I just had found the "Out of the Crayon Box" blog kitchen sets last week and decided to build one for DD for Christmas as well! Found the perfect chest of drawers the other day at the Habitat Re-Store for $10 and started on my way. It's really fun! I'd love to do the felt food thing too, but I don't like to sew, so I don't know if that'll happen. :)


Thanks for commenting!
