Play Kitchen Makeover

I have been meaning to share this for a long time but am finally getting around to it. Last July my mother-in-law found a cute little kitchen set for me on Craigs List. She knew I was looking for either an old kitchen to redo or an old cabinet to turn into a kitchen. I was super excited when she found it and knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. The kitchen was missing a few doors and was a little beat up but I didn't care! :) The best part was that it only cost me $20!!!

Here is a picture of the before.

There was supposed to be two doors on the bottom. One side is supposed to be an oven and the other a dishwasher.

Step one:
I removed all the knobs and other pieces I wanted to paint silver to look like stainless steel.

Step two:
 I removed all the doors and then painted the whole thing this cute aqua color. I LOVE the color!

Step three:
I forgot to take picture of this step but I taped off the burners and put newspaper around them so I could spray paint them silver to match all the knobs and sink.

Step four:
 After all the paint was dried I put all the knobs and handles and other pieces back on. At this point all I had left to do was make the curtain I wanted to use to replace the missing doors and I would be done.

Step five:
I added the curtain I made and was done! Now my little girl plays with her fun little kitchen all the time. She absolutely loves it!

My overall cost was about $30! Not bad in my opinion! I got the aqua paint for free, the silver paint for about $3, the fabric cost me about $7, and the kitchen was $20.

I love how it turned out! What do you think?

Crocheted Pillbox hat

I'm back again.:) I don't know about you and where you live but where I live the weather has been gorgeous the last few days!!!! I have been soaking up the rays every chance I get! Little L loves that she gets to be outside more as well!

The other thing Little L loves doing is copying me. Whatever I am doing she wants to be there helping me. The other day I was crocheting a new hat and she wanted to do the same so I gave her a hook and one of my small balls of yarn. Needless to say Little L thought she was pretty big stuff!

While Little L was occupied with her "work" I worked on my first pillbox hat. I have to say I am happy with the end result. What do you think?
This item is available in my Etsy shop. Also, feel free to follow me on Facebook I usually have even more items available through Facebook than I do through my Etsy shop.

The other day my sister, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, Little L, and I went to the Tulip fields. The fields were gorgeous! I had some fun taking pictures of Little L while we were there so I thought I would share.:)

Little L and I:)

Little L and her cousin (or should I say sister since they act more like sisters than cousins)

Little L being silly as usual. :)
