1- Play kitchens are very expensive
2- They are huge
3- Not very many would match our decor (which means a lot when you live in a townhouse)
So I proposed to my husband that we BUILD the kitchen. I did some research online and got some basic ideas... then we went shopping.
Here's the pictorial diary of our play kitchen creation.
We bought one small pine end table from IKEA for $19. This table served as the foundation for the play kitchen. Everything was built around this key piece.

We purchased a small stainless steel dog dish from the dollar store and used it for the sink of the kitchen. My husband traced the dish onto the surface so he would know how much of a hole to cut out for the "sink".
