Mini Kitchen Tour

Ok, just a brief break on all the Holiday Frenzy we've been enjoying in.

When I share with you our Living Room HERE, you may have noticed the little kitchen beside our tree...

It is obviously a gift for Sophia, since she has loved pretend cooking already so much!
We ordered our play kitchen thru Amazon and it originally looked like this...

Contemporary Play Kitchen
I like the espresso cabinets since once it moves into our own real kitchen, it will go well with the other cabinetry. However, I made some 'upgrades' on this little cutie...

First, I sprayed the handles, hooks and the Chalkboard my favorite GOLD!
Even my husband agreed that it looked so much more warm with this quick change.

Second, I changed the backsplash 'tile' into marble! 
I used left over contact paper for that.
I also added battery-operated puck lights under the open shelving and inside the refrigerator!

Lastly, I added these Dollar store bins to store the different types of food she has in her refrigerator!

 And as you can see here, this Christmas gift has been put to good use by it's little owner!

Hope you all have a Great Weekend Friends!

  6. Hi Vel, what a wonderful mommy you are! I love Sophia's cute little kitchen and of course she had to have all of these extras! What a little doll Sophia is. Thank you for your sweet words about our little Carter. She still has a long way to go but we're just taking it one day at a time.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
