Good morning sweet Girl !!! It’s your 4th birthday and we have a surprise….img_8381

I was super excited to find this IKEA kids kitchen on a resale site.  I had this on the Ikea christmas wish list. They retail for 99.00 I scored it for 40.00.

Once I had the kitchen I knew it had to be jazzed up. PLAIN was never going to do for my sweet girl.


The first thing we did was paint doors. Then we modified the oven door to open down like a real oven.

We made a painted an oven grid for the top shelf with paint. I had some leftover casters from a chair we tossed out. This gave a bit if height and ability to move it about the house as needed.


We added some knobs for the stove controls and a foam core fabric covered back splach with arrow print material.


Lastly a few battery operated lights and her pots, pans and food. I even made a drying towel and a sweet apron to match from the arrow material.

Its perfect to her and to me ! 

Its her 4th birthday and the best gift is the one that sparks creativity.
