Toy market stall

    Newer Older

    For this year's Father Christmas gift I made the little ladies a wee fruit + veg stall.

    Like last year's play kitchen, this is another Ikea hack. I started again with the trusty £7.99 Rast table and added bits of wood donated by friends or that I had left over from other projects to make the frame and trim out the basket area. I used leftover paint from our bathroom refurb - I would have preferred a darker green but was trying to do this on the cheap so I used what I already had wherever possible.

    Holding up the awning are shelf supports I found under a desk in the craft room that I'd had for, yes, three years. I knew I'd need those one day - read it and weep, clutter-free minimalists! The wooden boxes underneath are from Ikea and I just screwed a piece of wood into the back of the bottom shelf for the boxes to sit on for that market-friendly tilt.

    I made the awning from Ikea fabric but didn't have time to embroider the gals' name into it, too bad. The little veg boxes on top came with a set of Melissa and Doug wooden play food and I topped that set up with extra felt + wooden nature's candy from an online shop. The chalkboard is a piece of cardboard painted with blackboard paint and shoved into a charity-shopped frame.

    Not including the play food, this cost under £20 to make and the girls are gaga for it!

      Fantastic work !

      And as a reference point, £20 = 0.5 Go Go Hamsters (at early December pre "antimony scare" prices).
