I bought this wonderful old playstove for a mere $3.00 at a local thrift shop. I repainted it pink, added detail and decoupaged vintage children's book images to the doors and back. I would have loved to have this when I was little:)

I have been looking for similar shaped pieces so I can make one like yours to hold all my cookbooks etc. I have one that has sliding doors on the bottom, and two cubbies above the counter. Maybe I will paint a stove door on the front? I love yours. I even considered buying one online. I am addicted to kids toys!!! Great job. Did you see the lamp I made from a pink vintage woolverine stove? Its awesome! Thanks for sharing. I love the stove. Throw me any ideas... Posted: 6:48 pm on March 17th
