the full kitchen story

i was away when my little project hit ohdeedoh.  the feature can be found here, but i will post the details behind the creation below as well. to be honest, i'm still not done.  if you take a look you will notice a lack of a refrigerator.  i can tell you that one is in the works and will be shared once i'm through with days of photo editing and other various projects and higher priority posts ;)

The main structure is a hack of an unfinished plasma tv cabinet.  I based the dimensions off of a PBKids kitchen, allowing for a little more height due to the fact that my child is a giant.  Seriously, people ask if she’s 3.  She just turned 2!

I had hoped this would be more DIY, but my partner isn’t too keen on me handling major power tools.  I knew that a pro would have to cut the marble for me and luckily our incredible handyman had the right saw to do the trick.  He also helped with all the wood cutting and building up the top of the kitchen.  A friend cut the tile and I created the back splash with a simple adhesive, no grout needed.

I’ve listed all the supplies below.
