Introduction: Barbie Dollhouse Kitchen

Hello everyone, this is my third article still devoted to Barbie dollhouse


Why ?
For christmas, we offered a plastic and cardboard dollhouse for our 4 year old daughter. Very disappointed with the quality and realism, I decided to make one myself. I continue the development of this house with the kitchen of Barbie. Constructed from 7 mm laminate wood giving it a rustic look, it is equipped with doors and drawers, a sink with mixer tap and ceramic hob with LED.

The plans are available in PDF format.

Materials:
- Laminate wood
- Polycarbonate
- Plastic cap
- Wood glue
- Nails...


Tools:
- Table saw
- Drill
- Glue gun
- Hole saw
- Scroll saw
- Hand tools (saw, screwdriver, cutter, pliers, chisels ...)

Step 1: Workplan

The laminate flooring is cut with a saw table and a made a 45 mm hole whith a hole saw.

The sink is recovered in an aerosol lid and I used a metal expansion Bolt for gypsum board for evacuation.

Elements are glued with a glue gun.

Step 2: Drawers and Doors

The drawers are assembled with wood glue.

Grooves are made in wood for drawers.

I used screws for the handles.

Step 3: Assembly and Sink

The doors are mounted on pivot (nails)

For the mixer tap I used a metal hook, a spring and a small tube to the end.

Step 4: Ceramic Hob

The worktop is cut with a scroll saw.

For the ceramic hob I used a black painted polycarbonate piece.

I then add LED lighting to simulate a spark of the hob.

Step 5: Splashback and End

For the splashback I printed and laminated "subway tile".

It is bonded with double-sided tape.

toujours aussi bluffant :D
j'ai remarqué que tu utilises pas mal de matériaux différent genre lino, mosaïques, là c'est de la latte de parquet ou un truc du genre... tu as acheté exprès pour ce projet, récupéré dans un magasin, ou ce sont des chutes issues de tes propres travaux de rénovation? (désolé si c'est un peu trop personnel comme question)

Merci Rififi.

c'est de la récup, là c'est du sol stratifié qu'il me restait quand j'ai fais les chambres chez moi. Pour la maison de poupée j'ai eu le papier peint et les sols (lino, stratifié) par des amis (restes de travaux) et en magasin (en demandant des échantillons)

J'ai même expliqué mon projet à un vendeur de Leroy Merlin qui m'a gentilement fournis plein d'échantillons gratuitement !

Il n'y a que la mosaïque que j'ai acheté mais comme ça se vend à l'unité ça ne m'a pas coûté cher.
