Play kitchen

Phew!  I finally have time to do a post on the play kitchen we made for the girls.  We are SO happy with how it turned out!

I used pancake mix and syrup containers for Orange Juice and Milk jugs.  I stuffed the syrup container with batting for the milk and used my cricut to cut out lettering and an orange tree.

Thomas worked his magic on this cute little iron

Look at this great little washing machine Thomas created!  Way too cute!

The ironing board folds up (o:

I found this little magnet board/cork board set for a dollar at HONKS.  Too cute! 
I got the phone from freecycle.org.  The girls LOVE it!

I spray painted CD's for the burners and Thomas installed a light that turns on in the oven when you slide the oven knob.
The faucet is one I rescued from the old summer kitchen at our rock home in Mendon.  It worked perfectly!

We had to "make" the girls open other presents on Christmas morning.  It was like pulling teeth to get them to leave the kitchen alone for enough time to open another present!
Too funny!  I'm glad they like it.


  1. That is like a dream come true for any girl!! :) Such good ideas... I love it. Everything was too cute...the surprises just kept coming. You inspire me. Happy New Year!!
