DIY PVC Children’s Grocery Store Tutorial
Now, obviously, everyone’s measurements are going to be different, so I am not going to provide those. Â My space may be larger or smaller than what you have to work with so measure your space and determine the lengths you need before heading to the hardware store.
- 4 equal lengths to create a square for the top
- 2 lengths for the legs
- 2 3 inch pieces of PVC
- 2 90 degree connectors
- 2 45 degree connectors
- 2 “T” connectors
- 4 “U” hooks
(Excuse my chaotic photoâ€¦ this was done very late at night and I was pretty much delirious!)
Â Create the awning by joining your 4 equal lengths together. Â Use the 90 degree connectors at the top corners and the “T” connectors at the bottom corners.
Now, you are going to create the legs.Â Attach your 3 inch piece of PVC to the “T” connector. Then, attach your 45 degree connector.Â Finally, attach your leg piece.
Clear as mud?
Â Attach the other leg and it should now look like this!
Using the 4 “U” hooks, attach to the wall, using anchors if you don’t find a studâ€¦ and no, I am not talking about my husband.Â
To attach the awning to the bookshelf, you can either glue it or you can find connectors with holes for drilling. Â Totally up to you!
At last, it is time to attach your fabric. Â
Before attaching it to the frame, I sewed bias tape and the chalkboard banner to my fabric to finish the raw edges. Then, I just hot glued the fabric to the PVC pipe. Â Super easy!
The shelves for the groceries is simply a cubby unit from Target flipped on its side!
The shelf that holds the cash register was just a piece of scrap wood we had in the garage and I covered it with chevron shelf paper. Â The one end is attached to the wall with a 2×4 and the other end is just leaning on top of the shelf.
Easy as pie!
I hope that helps! Â If you guys have any questions or want to know more, please feel free to message me on Facebook or find my contact info on my blog. Â As always, I would love to see your creations over on my Flickr page, too!
