Busy Beavers over here!

A few months back inspiration hit when I discovered the DIY (do it yourself) play kitchens made out of repurposed furniture.  My little girl definitely needs one!  So the search began for the right nightstand, or side table, or entertainment center.  THEN I stumbled upon the perfect piece at Goodwill and it was even 50% off day!  Sweet mercy, I love when that happens.  It was a shabby chic white vanity bench.

It had a three-inch cushion on the seat, but that was removed within five minutes of being in my garage!  I needed a small piece of furniture because Zaza’s room is not that big… and we’ve squeezed a lot in there already.  This week I started working on it, finally.  There is going to be a sink and a two-burner stove top on the surface.  I put a shelf inside for storage and I’m making cutesy ruffled curtains for the front. 

Here are a few I found for inspiration:

Nightstand Turned Play Kitchen


And my favorite:


Oh, the ruffles and ball fringe make my fruffy heart glad.

While I’ve been in the garage sanding and painting and caulking and sawing, my son has been doing all the same activities in the back yard.  He started making a shed for his tools four or five years ago… and this week he finished it!  It’s too dark for photos tonight, but he did a stupendous job, if I do say so myself.  I’ll take photos tomorrow and add them here.

Like mother, like son.
