DIY Kitchen Playset

Mia loves her bed. She sleeps in her toddler bed that was once her crib. Now that she’s almost four, we thought it was a good time to get her a new bed.  After literally weeks of convincing her to get a new one, I had to make some room in her bedroom. I moved several downstairs to our family room and created a little area where I put a DIY Kitchen Playset.

This little repurposed kid’s play hutch was such a fun trash to treasure project and great thrift store find. I found the top shelf part at Goodwill for $10.00. It used to be red and white.  I got the table for free from a friend.  I pretty much winged this project but it worked out and has lasted and is in good condition still after almost a year. Since then I have added little hooks for her apron, oven mitts, and pot holders.

I upcycled this little play table almost three years ago. It used to be a pink Disney Princess table that was a little beat up.  I got it for free from my best friend who was moving at the time.  With a little paint and primer, I refurbished it.  I also added cushions to the seat and a little monogrammed seat back all for about $20.00. Check out the before and after photos along with my step by step process at this Upcycled Play Table post.

I also moved a second-hand stove I got from Craigslist, and at Mia’s request moved her baby high chair and bassinette she got for her birthday last year.  It turned out to be such a cute little play area for her and she will play there for hours and definitely gets more use now than it did in her room.

  • My friends thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to surprise our daughter with a play kitchenette. My son helped with the project while mom took his sister for a “day with mom”.

    We found lots of stuff at the Salvation Army and Goodwill. There are plenty of knick knacks and kitchen stuff there. A very inexpensive kitchen table set and my parents had an old 50s style stove that they always intended to sell at some point but never did.

    I am dad of the year now :)
