DIY childrens stoves

Today I did an apperance at the Hem & Villa 2010 Fair in Stockholm.
On stage I talked about decoration, childrens rooms and my thoughts about design.
I also made these childrens stoves from scratch – live.

They took an hour to make and the material cost was about 20 dollar.

I used chipboard and the top was mdf.
The black paint is Chalkboard paint (I love chalkboard paint and use it all the time, such a great matte black and such a creative thing!)
Then I glued gift wrap from Danish House Doctor on the sides.
The oven door is an old book, oven knob an old bobbin and the hinge is a piece from an old leather belt.

Not the best photo’s but I think they turned out great!

Jättefina! Ska göra en själv snart till mina paltar, men tror jag ska vara mer kreativ än vad jag först tänkt! Tack för tipset:)

[…] got home from my work at the fair and my little girl saw the other stoves I made. Naturally we had to transform hers as well. […]

You are genius. And you should probably get a book deal or something! (In English too though!!)
