The Play Kitchen #1

A few months ago, Adam and I stumbled across this Tutorial on making a playkitchen out of a nightstand, and we fell in love.  We then spent the next few weeks scouring Craigslist for cheap/free nightstands that we could turn into little works of art like Jane did ( Jane is the name of the talented woman who writes at "Out of the Crayon Box")
After a lot of dissapointments and false offers, we scored big and grabbed this nightstand for $6.00!  Sweet, right?  It was, except that the top turned out to be a veneer nightmare!  It looked like this:

(Bella decided this was her new favorite sun spot and refused to move, so please ignore the sleeping kitty)

But now, about a month later, I'm excited to say it looks like this:

Hooray!!! Obviously we still have a ton of work to do, but the bones are there and they're pretty :)  Kudos to my awesome handy husband and all the friends whose tools he has borrowed over the last couple of weeks.    We're hoping to have it done by the end of the summer.  It was originally going to be a birthday gift for Peanut, but we couldn't wait until November!  So now her gift will probably be a super cute set of pots and pans from Ikea to go with her new stove. 

Also, I got excited and made her an apron to wear that matches the curtains (that I have also made already but will show you all when we do the big reveal!)

                                                                          (I love ruffles!)

So this is the project that has been keeping me busy and away from the blog at night.  Again, apologies.  But I think the end result will be worth it!

ps.  Welcome TTA friends!  Be sure to leave your blog name so I can find you and follow you back!
