For my little chefs...

Sometimes I think I might be just a tad crazy.  I decided around 4 AM a few days ago that I was going to take on a rather big project...on a rather intense time frame!  I have to have this finished up by Saturday, my daughter's birthday.  We're hosting our families to celebrate, and it must be done!!!  So I've kinda dropped off the face of the earth...I'm terribly behind on responding to comments and emails, not to mention my real life responsibilities!  Ah, well.  Here's hoping I get it done!  In the meantime....
For well over a year (basically since the moment I first saw the plans for it over at Ana White), I have dreamed of building my kids a play kitchen for Christmas.  Well, since we were now in our own home, 2011 was the year!  This is my second Ana White project (the first was some gallery shelves I still haven't blogged!), and I'm happy with how it turned out:
It's not perfect, but that's okay.  The only thing not quite done is the ruffly curtain that goes under the sink.  It will match the fabric I used everywhere else...it's even sitting neatly folded on the shelf above my computer monitor, I'm looking at it as I type!  :)  And I built a dishwasher, which is the same plan as the oven, I just didn't use plexiglass in the door opening, and only one knob.
I won't give you the how-to, since Ana's plans do that, but I will tell you what I used.

My kids absolutely love it!  It's absolutely doable, if you want to do it.  And if you want to be amazed and inspired, browse Ana White's plan catalog!
