It was crazy simple, just took a little time. We bought a dog water bowl that seemed proportional to the cabinet, a little hook for a towel, and the least expensive faucet that we could find. That's all we purchased for the project. We did put a little foam adhesive on the bowl lip so it would be a bit more secure. We wanted to make sure it was still removable in case a little someone decided to actually put liquids in it. :) Brent sanded things down and cut out the necessary holes while we tried to decide how we would paint it. Since we're a painting factory at the new house, we had tons and tons of various colors to choose from to use. We wanted to make sure to use colors found in her room already so it would fit in well. Painting took some time; that puppy soaked that paint right up! Plus, when working with multiple colors, dry time was critical between coats. I made the curtains on Christmas Eve, of course, and Brent secured them with a few screws and some electrical wire. Done and done!
I'd say the kitchen has definitely been a hit. It timed perfectly with her creative play really starting to develop so she's been preparing us many meals and serving us much tea lately. It really makes me happy to know that I saved this thing from the dumpster so many years ago and now, it's truly been given new life. We have a little dresser that I painted some years back that I'm ready to change and I believe it would make the perfect stove/oven for her. There just might be a part two to this project!
