So this isn't a stamping, scrapbooking, or knitting project, but it is a project...a building project. Quent and I are going to make Jeralyn a play kitchen. We don't want to go too crazy with Christmas gifts for our little girl, but it's almost hard not to. Oops! Originally, we were going to get her a couple of books (she LOVES books), a couple of stocking stuffers, a scooter car thing, and maybe some Duplos. Well, I scratched the Duplos idea when we were recently visiting at my inlaws. My 22 month old nephew has a play kitchen and Jeralyn just loved it! She played with it and it's accessories a lot! He has Duplos too, but she just tossed them around. Haha! Maybe for her birthday... So I started looking for some kitchens on Amazon. They tend to be rather spendy, so I had to keep on searching. My dear friend Carrie suggested that maybe we could build our own. I think I honestly laughed out loud when she told me that. Maybe if I was sipping water I would have spit it out--it was one of those reactions. Me? Build a play kitchen? My husband is waaaay to busy for that. The excuses flowed. She encouraged me to look on Pinterest for ideas. Haha...maybe. But I did! And soon I was in this whirlwind of DIY (do it yourself) play kitchens. Now I'm obsessed! I'm glad I took Carrie's advice because now we are on our way to building this thing. After looking at ideas on Pinterest I sketched this out:
It's not to scale, but it's close.
We will be transforming this entertainment stand into the kitchen. Tonight we will start cutting and maybe start painting real soon. I will take a lot of pics and show the progression. Stay tuned!
P.S. That basket is where I keep my current knitting projects and knitting tools. And it's stored most of our DVDs, which I moved to some shelves yesterday. It all lives downstairs in our "family room".
