The paint colors are "green apple" and "red apple" and the fabric I found had apples on it, so of course it became an apple theme.
The faux tile countertop is really just spray paint. I bought 1/4" detailing tape from an autobody shop. After painting the surface white I taped off the tile design and sprayed a few squares greeen. When dry, I taped those squares and painted red. I looks like real tile, but was much easier and less expensive!
I found the faucet at Habitat Restore, and the sink is a dog dish. I love that the handles really turn!
Next came the stovetop. For the burners I used my scroll saw to cut out circles and spraypainted them silver. Then I googled stove burners, found a picture I liked, printed it, and used mod podge. The controls are the things that go behind door knobs & drawer pulls. I found them at a restore. Because I used extra long screws, the knobs actually turn. Awesome!
The stove window is just a piece of plexi-glass. The oven rack is a storage shelf from Big Lots.
It was a lot of work, but I feel like it's something that will be enjoyed for many years. (And not just by me!)
There are a few of these kitchens out there in blogland, but this is the one I fell in love with. Thanks for the inspiration!
This is the entertainment center I started out with. I cut off the top section and used the wood to make the sheves and doors. Man, there really is a use for everything!
