LM had been enjoying playing with the play Kitchen in his creche, and for Christmas I wanted to get him one, or make him one.
But space and money said no. So I decided to try make one.
I had seen a load of amazing DIY play kitchens on various blogs and Pinterest and wanted to attempt my own.
Some amazing DIY Play Kitchens I came accross:
from my favourite http://www.younghouselove.com/
|Fun itchen Ideas: the-new-home-ec Blog|
As you can see some absolutely amazing ones, better than real kitchens, but again money and space (and time and skill!).
So I looked at what we had. When we moved into our new house we decided to open up the kitchen and the next room (a small 2nd living room) into one large family room come kitchen. So that we could eat, cook, socialise while LM could play away, and down the line do homework, read, listen & play music, relax. So we lined one wall of the family room with IKEA children's STUVA units, as seen below.
