Yes, I built it. Me, who has zero spacial awareness and a couple months ago couldn't have told you the difference between a screw and a bolt, or a drill bit vs a screw bit. But after stumbling across this site (warning - don't click the link if you're not prepared to be inspired to start a new time consuming hobby), my creative juices went into overload and I had to figure this woodworking thing out.
Half way through building it, I realized I needed a work bench...so I built one. And it's sturdy.
Don't I look adorable?
Zoe *loves* her new kitchen. She's been baking cookies non stop since she received it. There is a motion sensor light in the oven so when she puts play food in there it automatically comes on for a few seconds.
The sink basin was the first thing we bought. It's a metal bowl we got for 50c at a yard sale.
The faucet was a bit pricey, about $12, we could have got something cheaper from craigslist or something if we had more time.
The hobs were some things I found for $2.50 at a hardware store. I'm not sure what they're supposed to be for, but as soon as I saw them I realized they'd be perfect for this.
I wanted real looking knobs that could turn. They were about $6 from amazon, and I put them on wooden doweling, and they turn nicely.
The pulls were reduced to $1 each.
I must admit I'm quite chuffed with myself. I had some help from Rene, credit where it's due. He showed me how to use the power tools and sometimes the saw got stuck on a knot and he helped. He also put the oven door on, which is crooked. tsk. He said it's my fault somehow, I made the frame squint or something.
I certainly learned a lot. And I had a ton of fun. I'm already working on my next project...(watch this space)
