My little girlfriend's kitchen got a makeover too!
She has a big double closet in her bedroom, so I decided to use one side for clothes and the other for toys. Santa delivered this pink play kitchen when she was 2, and it is still in perfect condition. Good thing Santa got a little help from a Pottery Barn rebate and a friends & family discount otherwise I don't think she would have been so lucky. ;)
She's 5 1/2 and still loves to play with her kitchen, so I wanted to give her a dedicated kitchen space. Setting it up in the closet works well for both of us - she loves that it feels like a "playhouse" and I love that the "playhouse" has doors to contain the mess. ;)
I can't believe how perfectly this little stove fits in here. It's like this closet was meant to be a kitchen!
She even has open shelving! (Target) She's a big fan of the command hooks for her teacups.
My favorite part is the flower pendant over the stove. It's a lampshade that I made for her nursery.
How cute is this little salt and pepper shaker that I picked up for $3 at a thrift shop?!
I also love the gallery wall.
I just used things that I already had to make it feels less like a closet and more like a playroom, or ummm....a playhouse is what my daughter would like me to say. This owl print is actually a note card that I layered over some fun wrapping paper.
The little mirrored butterfly hooks are also leftover nursery decor items. I found them at TJ Maxx (obviously years ago).
The girl loves the chalkboard which is just some plain old chalkboard paint on the wall.
I had so much fun turning this closet into a playhouse. The very best part was the look on the girl's face when I revealed it to her.
This was followed by her saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" while jumping up and down.
It's amazing what a little paint and a few accessories can do! I just love that girl and her beautiful pictures!
Are you using any of your closets for something other than the usual clothes and shoes?
