American Girl Kitchen Sink

If you didn’t already know, I am in the middle of a dollhouse renovation.  If you haven’t seen the armoire I am converting, go HERE and check it out!  This post is to show you how I made the sink for the kitchen.  So far, everything in the house is DIY!  Which I love!

Shopping list:

1/2″ plywood @ 2’ x 4’

Wood Glue

3/4’’ Nails for 18 Gauge Nailer

Mini Loaf Pan **I got mine at Michaels**

PVC Piping

2 Drawer Knobs

Cut List:

2 – 1/2’’ @ 7 1/4’’ x 2’’ – Front upper and lower pieces

2 – 1/2’’ @ 9’’ x 6 1/2’’ – Sides

1 – 1/2’’ @ 7 1/4’’ x 6 1/2’’ – Bottom

1 – 1/2’’ @ 7 1/4’’ x 2 3/4’’ – Top with Faucet

1 – 1/2’’ @ 7 1/4’’ x 3 3/4’’ – Top with Sink

1 – 1/4’’ @ 10’’ x 7 1/4’’ – Back


5/8’’ Drill bit

18 Gauge Nailer

Tape Measure

Miter Saw

Table Saw

Hearing Protection

Safety Glasses


Sanding Block

Step 1:

Pre drill 5/8″ hole for the faucet to fit through.  Your sizing may vary if you get a different size PVC pipe.  Also, I showed where I drilled holes for the knobs.  I did not tighten the knobs all the way down.  That way, they could spin freely.

Step 2

Apply wood glue to the ends that are going to be nailed.  Then nail both of the side pieces to the bottom.

Step 3

Glue and nail the back piece on.

Step 4

Glue and nail the front lower piece on to the bottom and side pieces.

Step 5

Cut the sink hole as shown below and nail it into place.

Step 6

Add the front top cover by using wood glue and nailing into place.

Step 7

After you have painted the PVC piping and knobs the color you want, add them to the sink.  You can also place the mini loaf pan in the cutout as shown below.

    Can this be made with the foam board like you did with the Kitchen? I am not very handy with wood. We are also downsizing due to my husbands Parkinson disease. Our youngest has CP, autism and will our forever child. I believe we will be playing AG dolls for a long time. I am hoping to make a Grace’s bakery for her birthday, in the beginning of January. Grace and my girl favor so much her friend’s said Grace looked just like her. Grace is her only true AG doll.
