Build With Me: Cute & Thrifty Play Kitchen -In Just Six Weeks
I have decided to try something new. I have yet another cabinet ready to transform into a play kitchen. This time I thought I would give in-depth instructions (with lots of flexible options) on how I build my play kitchens. Then I thought, wouldn't it be fun to have a "Build Along." If you follow along, you could have your very own play kitchen to gift for Christmas. And, since this year things are tight for so many of us, I have come up with several even thriftier supplies and materials. I will list all my tools and supplies and detail carefully the costs. I even thought I would host a special give away at the end.
Can you build it? Yes you can!
Maybe your thinking, "I have never built anything in my life!"
Seventh grade shop class was the last time I built anything before the pink play kitchen. I made a rack for VCR tapes. Now, that fact should show you just how long ago that was.
Maybe you're concerned about tools?
Tools do help, when I made the pink play kitchen I had a hand saw and a power drill/ screwdriver thing and that's about it. I have come up with some suggestions that can help you build a nearly tool free play kitchen!
Lesson 1 starts on Wednesday November 4. I hope you'll join me!
PS: Maybe you're like me and you haven't got a wee one to build a play kitchen for, yet you still want to make one just for fun. I hope you'll consider making one for your favorite charity. I have earned at least $100 for each of mine and that money has helped buy lunch for many homeless people in Hollywood.
