Play Kitchen

Here’s the play kitchen my husband and dad helped me with.  We made it for the girls for Christmas, barely got it finished in time.  I had lots of paint to touch up and had gotten two different kinds of knobs for the stove controls.  So it took me this long to get motivated to finish it up! 

I knew I wanted to make the girls a play kitchen a long time before Christmas.  I thought if I had one bigger present they could share it would be more fun!  Then Jess over at The Adventures of Rory and Jess and Sadie posted this kitchen idea.  Looked like the ticket for me, not to big or complicated. 

Now I just need to add some finishing touches: maybe some fabric baskets for under the oven, artwork for above the sink, and if I feel really ambitious a wire rack for inside the oven.   Of course there’s also the stuff like play food, aprons, oven mitts, a chef’s hat perhaps.  Oh this kitchen could keep me busy for a long time.

I did manage to snag a couple puck lights at the after Christmas sale at Target for cheap, Natalie’s always turning the light on in the oven (just like the real thing).  Thanks again Jess for the inspiration and be sure to check out the kitchen she and her dad made for her little girl for Christmas, it’s amazing!
