Over the weekend I had a chance to work on the play kitchen and I'm telling you it was FUN! I got to pull out the drill and the jigsaw and get down and dirty!!!! The dust was flying, the noise was loud and I was having a BLAST!!!!! There is something so soothing about holding a saw and creating something totally awesome! Anyway down to the details. Remember this nightstand?
Well it currently looks like this!!! I forgot to take pictures of the progress because I was just having so much fun with my power tools!!! FYI for anyone reading this a hand sander WOULD BE an AWESOME present for me (ours is toast!).
Now more on what I did. First I picked up a metal bowl for the sink at Dollarama (gotta love that store!!) and drew a circle on the top of the nightstand. I had to make sure it wasn't right on the edge or else the top drawer wouldn't slide in and out because it would catch on the bowl. Then I cut inside my drawn line about a quarter of an inch so the bowl wouldn't fall through and I had a lip to glue the bowl onto. Here is my somewhat even bowl hole. I didn't make it perfect because you won't see it once the bowl is installed and glued in place.
Finally I pulled out some primer and primed the outside of the entire nightstand. I even managed to sand down the high gloss laminate sections and prime them as well. It actually worked better than I expected it to so I may have to change my plans... we shall see. I forgot to take a picture of the primed oven but believe me its white now!! So this week I'm hoping to finish priming and painting the oven so I can move on to building the back piece and shelf! But so far I'm LOVING IT!!! Wait till you see the fun finishes I have for this!!!
