Kitchen Remodeling

on a small scale....

This used to be a Pottery Barn workbench....then my friend Amanda saved it from a thrift store and created a kitchen for her two children. She passed it on to us for Maleiah and Justin and I remodeled it further. It used to be red and brown, Justin painted it black and white which matches our kitchen perfectly. We didn't really plan it like that but it was the paint we had in the garage. When we brought it in we had a good laugh. :)

I really wanted to think out of the box for adding to it and so I went to the Home Depot and kept my eyes open for inexpensive ways to dress it up.
We used corner moulding pieces for the burners, a pipe for the faucet and we got a package of hot and cold knobs for the sink. My friend already had the bowl for the sink. We added some hooks to the side for pot holders, towels and such. We used wooden knobs for the stove as well and I labeled them: off, lo, med, high.
I am so happy with how it turned out and I think Maleiah will enjoy many years of play with it!

Cute kitchen! We made a similar one years ago for Holly. It was made from the things we found in Romania and didn't turn out as nice. But Holly had a lot of fun with it. I'm sure your little ones will too!

This little kitchen is so lovely!

We made a doll house for our girls a few years back, I think we had just as much fun (choosing curtains and the like), as the girls enjoy playing with their dolls in it!
