AHHHHH...I did it!!!

The Play kitchen is done!!! You may remember that a few weeks ago Jane from Out of the Crayon Box was offering a "build a play kitchen" build along. I was up for it!!

I am in total love. I want to make more!! This was such a fun and surprisingly easy project. I was sooo prepared for it to take forever and get me totally flustered, but it didn't.
I love the color! It's a lavender color. Very hard to photograph! Using the Rust-Oleum Painters Touch lilac. One can was all I needed to cover my little dresser.

Do you remember what this started as?


Remember...this is my garage project, since it's for my daughter for Christmas...hence the ugliness of the background behind the adorable kitchen...they really don't go together, do they?!

I love it!

Pot Rack attached to an extra cabinet door leftover from this project.

Now, I have a few questions to pose to you. My burners are to the far right because I thought about doing some type of grill strips on the left. Another set of burners just wouldn't fit. So I ask you...Do you think grill strips would look silly? Should I leave it the way it is?

This is how I attached the cabinet door to the little nightstand. Extra 1 x 2, some screws and of course gorilla glue!!

I'm also linking up to Shanty 2 Chic's Rustoleum party...check out all the great projects!

Oh my goodness - that is soooo adorable!!! And so funny that I saw this today, because I have a nightstand sitting up in my upstairs landing from Ella's room redo that has nowhere to go! What a great project. I think I am going to try it. Ella would love it for Christmas! So cute! Do you mind if I put this in my Friday Favorites??

Lisa that is fantastic! And SO much more original than all the plastic 'crap' in stores (of which, of course, we have one!) Completely adorable. I love the 'skirt' on the bottom! and the color!

That turned out great!! I have been wanting to make one for my daughter but am still on the look out for the "bones." Yours turned out fab! I love that there is somewhere for pans to go too.
