DIY Play Kitchen Oven

DIY Play kitchen oven

This post comes courtesy of my good friend Sharon. She is a super crafty lady on the cheap! She made this play oven for my niece!

This play kitchen was made out of extra furniture laying around. Super cheap and way easy for anyone to make! Spent total $15 to make this.

You can also get some “junk” stuff people leave on the curb or from thrift store. She is working on a big oven now with a dresser she picked up form the curb!

Basically just sand it down and then paint whatever paint color you want.

You can buy cheap test paints people return at home dept or lowes for cheap. She got this one at home dept for 50 cents!

Then add fabric on the bottom to cover the area. You can get the fabric at hobby lobby or walmart for cheap. They always put the returned fabric on sale, great deal!

Optional,  add a wood piece on back for that extra look.

Next, add hard ware. She got hers from home dept for $1.

Last paint circles on the top for the stove top

She added a picture frame from the dollar tree and painted it to match the fabric for a little color.

Super Cute!

  10. This is really cute. My great grand daughter would love one of these. I will have to get her uncle to build one for her as he is the handy man with wood crafts. Even the grand son likes to play kitchen with her and gammaw to

  12. I really want to get my daughter a play kitchen for Christmas, and I’ve heard of people making their own, but I have to say I wasn’t so sure about doing it myself! You make it seem so easy! I’m kind of inspired to try this myself.

  13. I love this idea!! My little girl would have so much fun with this!

  14. This is such a great way to upcycle used things!

  15. this came out so great! I often do see junked pieces that ppl are throwing out and it does get you to wondering what you could do with it – this is wonderful example! and who knows, after a few years you can repurpose it – again!
