DIY Kids Play Patisserie

kids playstand patisserie free plans

A super sweet treat this week and we're starting off with this kids pretend patisserie playstand.  My fellow blogger Stefanie over at Brooklyn Limestone puts together the most beautiful parties and her daughter's 3rd birthday was nothing short of amazing.

It all started when Stefanie posted a quick sketch of her Pretend Play Paris theme over on Instagram.  I saw it and knew I could build it so I offered.  Long story short we came up with plans, I built it (plus 2 more playstands coming this week) and delivered the unfinished stands to her Brooklyn home.  We only live about 45 min. from each other so it's a win, I get to build and she gets the stands!

Today I'm sharing the plans for the kids play patisserie, step by step instructions including cut lists can be found down below but first you must see the finish patisserie playstand.

Stefanie did all the finish work using a fresh and fun mint paint color with beautiful lettering.
