A cute new one like this was out of our price range
from Pottery BarnAnd even if we got one of the free ones like this that's always popping up on freecycle, where would we put it?
For that matter, even if I got up the gumption to make one like this...

I fell in love when I saw this in Parent's Magazine. See more great ideas hereAnd that's when a shallow, wide box from soap.com arrived at my door. At first I just put it in our recycle pile, but every time I passed it, it called to me and by dinner time I was convinced. I gathered materials after dinner, and once the kids were in bed, I went at it. Here's the finished product.
I love that I already had everything I used, so not only did it not cost me a cent, but it also used up some junk lying around. And, it fits perfectly on top of that rubbermaid tub that had been the previous stove. Best of all, Anna loves it.
this, her first recipe.
