Play Kitchen – Working on the Stove

The last three weeks, I’ve been sharing with you my progress on making a play kitchen for my niece’s birthday.  This week, I found cupboard door at the Habitat for Humanity Store to make a chalk board.  I also started working on the stove top.  The fun stuff this week was spray painting and using Gorilla Glue for the first time.  I had very high hopes for finishing the stove top, but my first time attempt didn’t go over as well as I had planned.  The problem  is, I can’t get the small wooden dowels to stick.  The Gorilla Glue worked great for the circles, but not for the wooden dowels. There are two possible ways to fix it.  First, increase the wood surface area to allow more contact to the tile. And second, sand the surface that will be adhering to the tile or leave it un-painted. Does any one have any suggestions on getting wood to stick to ceramic tile? I would love to use the idea as pictured above; if you have any suggestions please write them in the comments.

Until next week, I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Maybe you could glue one of the little flat circles to each corner and then glue the dowels to the wood instead of the tile? Or dry the glue a bit with a hair dryer so it gets tacky before you put the pieces together.

  2. Awesome job! Can’t wait to see it finished :)
