I found this photo online and thought is was the best idea! However, I have visited a few thrift stores around here and have yet to find something that would work, so I transformed an existing shelf in the girl’s room into a small kitchen area.
Using a plate from the tea set as a guide, I painted black circles for the stove eyes. Then, I took screws and attached the toy microwave to the shelf above. My girls love it! I know it is not the full set we dream about, but it is a great fast way to make a toddler kitchen on the fly. I may attempt to put in a sink and add a door to their bookshelf to make a refrigerator. I will post pics if I find time to add on.
