A mother’s imagination knows no bounds when it comes to her beloved children. Inventing new games, tasty dishes, pretty hairstyles and handmade toys is just as important as any other task on the average mom’s to-do list. And very often, hand-crafted things are much more meaningful, personal and valuable to a kid than even the most expensive store-bought gifts.
Rodessa Villanueva-Reye from the Philippines went above and beyond the call of duty and created the ultimate dream kitchen for her daughter out of ordinary cardboard boxes.
First, Rodessa gathered together some leftover cardboard boxes and laid them out to form the outline of a miniature kitchen. Her husband also took an active part in finding proper ’’construction materials.’’
Then she made some cupboard doors and marked the places where the play oven and sink would be installed.
Vinyl stickers turned out to be the perfect method for decorating the play kitchen.
To create the finished look, Rodessa asked her daughter to collect all her ’’kitchen’’ toys.
But, as we know, there are no limits to perfection. Rodessa wanted to give more life to the kitchen, so she made a sign that read ’’Audrey’s Café & Restaurant’’ and put it on the outside.
Rodessa used an ordinary stainless steel bowl to create a sink. A liquid soap dispenser became the kitchen tap.
The oven controls are made out of ordinary caps from old jars.
And ta-da! The dream kitchen is fully equipped. The chef is clearly very happy and ready to receive new guests.
