After removing the glass from the doors, I replaced the large door (refrigerator) opening with wood and the smaller (oven) door with Plexiglas. The smaller door had hinges on the side, so I moved them to to bottom for it to open like an oven. The 'sink' is an aluminum dog bowl. Primed and painted, it really is starting to look like something other than an entertainment center.
Painting the refrigerator and oven silver gave it every girls dream of 'stainless'. Stove top burners are discs of wood painted black with little wire 'stars' picked up at a dime store glued on top. Oven and stove top knobs are wooden drawer pulls also painted black. A free online photo of zebras and a rainbow seemed like the perfect view. Printing in 4 sections and laminating it made the window panes with wooden strips surrounding them.
Curtains and a chandelier completed the look for the front, but one more addition was needed - chalkboard paint on the side. A little shelf with pegs held an apron, bucket of chalk and a frilly little tassel! Can't get much more 'girlie' than that.
Voilà - Ready for someone special to play!
