Chris’ parents bought the kids an adorable kitchen for Christmas and they are obsessed with it.
The only problem was it was a little small for three children to play with at once and you know how well toddlers share…
So I knew I wanted to add some kind of extension to it so that they could have more space to play together and cook.
I looked at several stores for a table the right size but couldn’t find one, so during naptime yesterday I decided to just build the dang thing! haha
Chris had shown me how to use his nail gun when we worked on our dining room and I’d used a miter saw once before so even though I’m scared of loud noises and tools that could potentially sever my limbs off, I figured “What could go wrong?!”
It only took me about an hour to make and while very far from perfect (I told Chris not to look too closely…he’s a judger haha) it works and they love it! I stained the top and painted the legs white to add some cuteness to it of course.
I found the blue cabinet at an antique store and knew it would be perfect for their kitchen. The green shelf used to be at our coffee bar at the Munro Ave house and I figured it would give them a cute place to hang their mugs.
It makes me so happy to watch them all play together and use their imaginations. There are still battles with sharing and the cute little cabinet has become a torture devise for tiny fingers in the wrong hands (aka Elliot) but I hope this space becomes a favorite spot in their childhood adventures.
