Today you can find me over at Honey Bear Lane where I will be sharing my Shapes Matching game tutorial. Head on over to Heidi's blog and say Hi. She makes some amazing baby puff quilts. I'm so honored to be featured on her blog today.
I know that some of you have been waiting for the big play kitchen reveal and I can now say that it is complete! (It's been done for sometime now I've just been needing to pick up some new knobs.)
Back in May I found this awesome children' dresser at a yard sale for $3. It was in bad shape and needed some TLC. I could see it's potential and just had to buy it.
One of the things that I loved about this little dresser was the two shelves on top and the cupboards on bottom. The wood on top and above the drawer was just particle board and had warped over time. We took those off and gave the entire dresser a thorough sanding job and new paint.
Here is a picture of what it looks like now. Much better right? I really liked the original colors of green and white so I stuck with those. We also added some thicker wood on top and above the drawer.
The cupboard holds most of our play food and mixer while the drawer holds pots and pans. Overall I'm thrilled with how this turned out. I couldn't have done it without the help of my parents and neighbor. Thanks so much for helping me transform this dresser into a fun play kitchen for my kids.
