more play kitchens

i am back on a play kitchen kick today, after taking max to the doctor and him loving the play kitchen in the office. i really don't like the look of the commercial play kitchens, they're kind of an eye-sore in a house, so i am really wanting to make our own. plus, a DIY kitchen has the potential to be much cheaper (the plastic kitchens and specialty kitchens are upwards of $150!). here are a few i have found that i am loving and will use as inspiration for the project.

most of these kitchens are from ohdeedoh.com and use ikea components as the base of the project. some are pricier DIY's than others but i think overall, i could probably make a play kitchen for easily under $100, but hopefully under $50 or $60 (perhaps using thrifted units instead of new ones from ikea).

enjoy!

I think I am going to attempt one like it. I can't wait to see what you decide to do, we can give each other tips and ideas. hehe. who'd have thought tiny kitchens would be so fun?
