kitchen remix

If you know me at all, you know I can’t leave good enough alone.  So I’ve been wanting to re-paint the girls play kitchen and finally did it.  I just couldn’t come up with much with the old green/purple combo. 

I needed bright and fresh!  Now I feel like I can make some fun accessories for them to play with, a couple aprons are first on the list. 
Here’s the original post on how I made the kitchen (with help from my dad and husband).  It’s really a great size and even though they don’t play with it a ton, I still think it leads to some fun and creative play time.

And sorry for those who are waiting for the 241 Tote pattern, it’s been a mix of monsoon season and snow here for the last however many days and I just need a few finished pictures and it’ll be ready! I’ll be back…

    Ooohhhh I love the picture of the bag! Great styling! Brice loves his little Ikea kitchen. He doesn’t play with it everyday, but when he does he has so much fun making us food and tea. I have yet to make him anything for it…but always have plans to!

  4. can’t wait to see that bag – it looks so great hanging off your shoulder!

    We have a fake kitchen from Grandpa here in our real kitchen, and both my girls love to play along while Mommy is making dinner – always makes my heart so happy 🙂

    This turned out great. I’m going through a yellow phase right now, it just seems to go with everything!

  7. I like the new paint colors, but what happened to the fridge?

    Love the new paint job on the kitchen. The old colors were cute, but this is much more timeless looking.

  11. Kerry says:

    I could happily play in that myself! Your daughter looks very happy with it.

    Wow! The fresh paint really fits the upcoming spring. Looks great!

  13. Care says:

    LOVE the yellow!

  14. I’m convinced that kids always want to play with THE OTHER KID’s play kitchen. Yours is adorable! We recently got rid of ours because only guests ever played with it…

  15. I love the new color scheme. It looks very fresh and springy. So cute. Fantastic picture of the new bag, too!

    my daughters saw the pics of the kitchen this morning and FREAKED OUT. And they’re 8 and 10! I bet you’ll continue to get a lot of use out of it for longer than you think. The new colors are really great.

    Love the the yellow and white, so fresh. Lovely.

  18. Oh, that is so cute. Been thinking of getting a play kitchen for my little one. Now, I really want one just for the cuteness factor of yours:)

  19. Kris says:

    I want to play! 🙂 It’s so pretty!

  20. dana says:

    cute cute kitchen and I Love that last shot of you. Looks like a magazine photo.

  21. ayumills says:

    Love the new colors on the play kitchen! So Cheerful!

  22. Yeah for yellow! Maybe it’s the end of winter blues (Ok, so it’s definitely that!) but I’m really jonesing for yellow right now. Good luck getting the accessories made. That one has been in my “to-do” list for over a year now. I’m such a slacker… I chuckle now to think about how I told myself that I’d only let the kids have the cheap plastic food “for now”. After all, I’m way to crafty to settle for that, right?? I had visions of cute felt food and home made goodies. Silly me! Hopefully I get it all done before the kiddos outgrow the kitchen. 😉

    My daughter just called out “Can you and Daddy please make us one of those kitchens?” It looks great in yellow. And I love the final shot of you and your new bag – very magazine worthy 🙂

  24. Did you also make yourself those cute play vegetables your little one is holding on picture?

  25. I love the white and yellow! I have been considering redoing ours, too. It’s a three piece set and has definitely seen better days. As always, thanks for the inspiration!

    Love the colour choice. Very spring-y and fresh.

    I just love the way children get lost in roll-play (it’s how it should be). Your daughter must love the nice fresh look kitchen too 🙂

    My youngest daughter had a play kitchen, although much smaller than yours, and she spent hours a day playing with it. Your paint colors are wonderful and I love the basket of squooshy veggies!
