A DIY Play Hardware Store

Kate's Creative Space

In our opinion, there's probably nothing that Kate from Kate's Creative Space can't invent. For Christmas this year, she built this amazingly detailed hardware store for her son Harry.

We love the idea of a hardware store for a child to explore; there are plenty of play kitchens and play markets, but this store is unique and original. There's a coffee machine where you can get Harry's coffee, a selection of paints and wallpaper, gardening supplies, and, my personal favorite, "general ironmongery." Of course, this hardware store is a one-stop shop, so you can also fill up your gas tank from the vintage gas pump.

You can start the tour right here at Kate's Creative Space. Don't miss a cup of the trucker-style coffee.
