I have been meaning to do this post since Matilda's 1st Birthday! And here it is a month later!
This cute little kitchen was her birthday present from "Papi" and "Mami", we made it so it was ready for her birthday, it is made out of an old TV stand and I think it turned out quite nice.
I really like (looove) play kitchens and play food since I was little and I wanted Matilda to have her very own one, I thought it was the perfect present for her birthday! I wanted a wooden one as I think they look way better than the plastic ones and they are more durable ( good point, specially with a little one who loves banging things against each other!) but I soon realized that they were more expensive than I had thought (waaay more expensive) so we decided to build one instead and to be honest I enjoyed this project quite a lot (despite the fact that it took 4 coats of paint plus the primer).
Thanks to "Papi" Matilda has a great kitchen at a very low budget and the best part is that she plays with it every day! (more than 3 min which is her average with everything else). I couldn't have done it without him, he was in charge of the "measuring, sawing, drilling and hammering" and I was the one in charge of the "designing, painting, sewing, painting, painting".
Now we are working on a play fridge! what a lucky girl! ;)
If you have a little one I assure you that it will be the best present you can get him/her so don't think twice, get yourself a piece of furniture that you can convert into the perfect play kitchen!!
It doesn't usually look this tidy ;0)
"La Abu" bought the cutest little set of pans and pots for Matilda and the rest of the pottery, tea set and play food were presents for her birthday.
I hope you like it!
