I started out with MDF and the very nice people at Home Depot cut it to size. I glued and nailed it then primed.
I found little wood knobs at Michael's and painted them silver. The burners were chop sticks that I cut and painted black. I cut the sink hole with my jigsaw (not a very good job) and used a cake pan for the sink. Here are a couple of pictures of the finished kitchen. The grand total was $30.00...... just beautiful!
