diy: a simple, wooden playkitchen



every great cook started small. and i can't wait for my little one to serve me his first dish. i've wanted to have a playkitchen for a long time, and i took ages browsing all kinds of fantastic selfmade ones. in the end, this one here on ohdeedoh really caught my attention, and i knew i wanted to go for something similar.

our's is a little simpler, but except for the bowl for the sink all components are from ikea. the whole kitchen cost me less than 30 Euros (about 43 dollars)! and while i walked through my local ikea i saw the playkitchen they sell at least 5 times (screaming: buy me!!), but i didn't (it's 130 Euros!)



here is a little "shopping list" in case you want to go for it too:

Rast Nightstand
2 Fabian wallshelves (for the back)
Bekväm spice rack (turned upside down!)
Bygel S-hooks
Panna coasters (for the stove)



i LOVE, the simple, wooden look of it (i even think it has more style than my own kitchen :-P) i might attach some knobs and a faucet at some point, but for now, the kitchen is perfect for a not even 2-year-old! he's playing with his little jars and bowls and the spoons etc. the only "food" in the kitchen are some toy toadstools and (real) dry chickpeas, which he loves pouring into all the different containers.

thanks to (my) papa for helping me with this project! it was great fun and has been far too long since we last worked on something together!

jööööö, die ist aber cool!! Wirst sehen, er wird dir tolle Gerichte zaubern. Bei uns war'n es damals: Weinblattschnitzel mit Gänseblümchenreis, Auflauf vom Erdreich - manchmal mit Regenwurmbeilage.... :) Klingt im Nachhinein lustig, damals war's unsere Ferienbeschäftigung. UND: ich kann mich heute noch daran erinnern....
Danke, dass auch du es deinem Kind ermöglichst kreative Fantasie zu entwickeln!! lg

How ingenious! Love this idea. My fil built my daughter a little kitchen when she was younger, but it was a tad difficult to use. Very heavy. I'm sure your son loves it. What did he serve you?

The kitchen is phantastic - as is the mother who designed and the grandpa who built it.
Spencer MUST love it!!! I'm waiting for the first "soup".......

This is absolutely adorable! I wish I would have made one of these for my kiddos when they were younger. They would have had a blast playing with it :) I'll be featuring this on the upcoming Thrifty Thursday link party. Thanks so much for linking up!
