kitchen remix

3.23.2011

If you know me at all, you know I can't leave good enough alone.  So I've been wanting to re-paint the girls play kitchen and finally did it.  I just couldn't come up with much with the old green/purple combo. 


I needed bright and fresh!  Now I feel like I can make some fun accessories for them to play with, a couple aprons are first on the list. 


Here's the original post on how I made the kitchen (with help from my dad and husband).  It's really a great size and even though they don't play with it a ton, I still think it leads to some fun and creative play time.



And sorry for those who are waiting for the 241 Tote pattern, it's been a mix of monsoon season and snow here for the last however many days and I just need a few finished pictures and it'll be ready! I'll be back...

  1. Ooohhhh I love the picture of the bag! Great styling! Brice loves his little Ikea kitchen. He doesn't play with it everyday, but when he does he has so much fun making us food and tea. I have yet to make him anything for it...but always have plans to!

  4. can't wait to see that bag - it looks so great hanging off your shoulder!

    We have a fake kitchen from Grandpa here in our real kitchen, and both my girls love to play along while Mommy is making dinner - always makes my heart so happy :)

  13. I'm convinced that kids always want to play with THE OTHER KID's play kitchen. Yours is adorable! We recently got rid of ours because only guests ever played with it...

  15. my daughters saw the pics of the kitchen this morning and FREAKED OUT. And they're 8 and 10! I bet you'll continue to get a lot of use out of it for longer than you think. The new colors are really great.

  21. Yeah for yellow! Maybe it's the end of winter blues (Ok, so it's definitely that!) but I'm really jonesing for yellow right now. Good luck getting the accessories made. That one has been in my "to-do" list for over a year now. I'm such a slacker... I chuckle now to think about how I told myself that I'd only let the kids have the cheap plastic food "for now". After all, I'm way to crafty to settle for that, right?? I had visions of cute felt food and home made goodies. Silly me! Hopefully I get it all done before the kiddos outgrow the kitchen. ;-)

  22. My daughter just called out "Can you and Daddy please make us one of those kitchens?" It looks great in yellow. And I love the final shot of you and your new bag - very magazine worthy :)
