Done. With 24 hours to spare! This play kitchen has been in the works for an entire year, and I am so excited to say that it is done, and it is perfect.
After searching forever for a play kitchen, I couldn’t find one that was exactly what I wanted. So I gathered inspiration from a bunch of different DIY versions, and I decided I would build it myself. This was months and months ago. Since I wanted her to have it before she left for college, I enlisted a little help. I drew up very detailed plans, and found someone who could build the basic structure for me. So no, I did not make the whole thing all by myself. But I designed it, and I added everything to it. So I am just going to go ahead and say that I made it. Because mine totally could have come out looking this good. ha!
And yes, I had to take it out to the front walkway to take pictures… I have a very curious two year old glued to my side, and I had approximately 45 seconds to myself to get photos of it.
I sewed some kitchen towels, a little apron, an oven mitt and a hot pad out of vintage fabric left over from her birthday party.
The napkins are vintage, and were actually made by my grandmother. I was a little hesitant to put them in there, but at least now they will actually get used.
So there it is. I love it. And Avery might have to fight me to get to play with it.
