About This Project

What do you want for your birthday? 'A purple kitchen'....

That's how it all started. My husband and I had no previous woodworking experience and we managed to build these guys.

The devil was in the details here! Building these didn't really take that long, It was the finishing and accessorizing.

Thank God that I know how to sew/craft. I loved the ruffle curtain from crafting chicks so I made that. The apron and oven mitts were made from the same set of fabrics. I ordered the butterfly stick on mirrors on line....they didn't stick that well so we added double stick tape. The front of the fridge is magnetic primed. The flower magnets I made and the imagine was a primed wood precut from Michaels that I painted. Stove burners are plaques for wood burning. Stove knobs, brush, and flower hook all from Hobby Lobby. Bar faucet from ebay and the sink is just a bowl.

The lights were my husbands idea....the fridge lights are magnetic drawer lights that come on when the door is opened and off when closed - just like a real fridge! The oven light is a push button LED light.

My baby was thrilled to receive this. While I loved the PB kitchens, I really think this was much better because it gave my husband and I something to work on together and it was priceless to hear my girl tell everyone that Mommy and Daddy MADE that kitchen just for her!

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
$150-$200 Probably could have done it cheaper if we didn't add a lot of the extras.
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
Pine
Finish Used: 
2 coats of primer, 2 coats of behr paint, and 3 coats of polyacrylic. The backs are pre primed bead board that we painted white. Magnetic primer on the front of the fridge. Burners are painted with a soft white acrylic and then polyacrylic.
