- Take a working faucet and block off either the hot or cold knob
- Thread 1/4″ tubing through the faucet and block off any other passages so the water has to go through the tubing (this increases the water pressure)
- Mix and match brass plumbing fittings to fit your tubing to a hand water pump (we used a weed spray gun). This is the hard step- be prepared to fiddle
- Sink: rimmed metal dog food bowl. Comes in and out easily so you can clean up when you’re done playing
- Stove Burners: Spray painted junk mail CD’s. Make sure you spray on a finish coat afterwards so the paint doesn’t chip
- Microwave Buttons: vinyl to the rescue! Grab the SCAL file here
- Adding a valance over the sink and a curtain below only used 1 fat quarter and really dresses things up!
- Add a touch light (found ours at the Dollar Tree) to go above the sink. I forgot to take a photo, but it’s adorable when it’s on:)
- Buy some dollar store baskets to store your food in under the sink. Or…instead you can make the area under the sink into a little fridge
- Beadboard for the splash board makes things extra cute!
- Go to town with hooks! So fun for little hands and it keeps everything organized. We did some for her tea cups above the stove and some on the side for big utensils
- A great place to find cookware is the Dollar Tree: we got a mini pot, a loaf pan and a cookie sheet.
- Add a few vintage silhouettes
- Magnet Board: my MIL is great with clay so she made Little Miss a magnetic flower garden- all of the flower heads and the bees are magnets. This was a HUGE hit!
- Chalkboard: Add a little space for your little ones to write up a menu
