This mom proved you don't need to spend a fortune to give your child the play house of their dreams. With just a few household items, Rodessa Villanueva-Reyes, made her daughter an amazing play kitchen. It may seem like a daunting task but it's actually really easy. You don't have to be an architect to recreate this for your child!

Rodessa made the foundation of this kitchen with old cardboard boxes. She drew on the boxes with permanent marker as a guideline for where she wanted to make cuts for cabinets, drawers and appliances.

She then covered the boxes in vinyl stickers to make the exterior of the boxes look colorful and polished. She even printed out large pictures to make a decorative wallpaper, fake windows, a microwave and an oven.

Rodessa finished off her daughters play kitchen by adding a sign that said, "Audrey's Cafe and Restaurant." She filled the area with all her daughter's favorite kitchen toys. This made for the perfect play area for her daughter who loves to be in the kitchen! We think this is an absolutely adorable idea that anyone can do!
