Someone's in the Kitchen

C'mon, admit it- you KNOW you want a Gigi {aka "G"} and Grandadder- so they can make you a really cool playkitchen like Baby M's! I realized I've done a great injustice having not posted a follow-up from the first post and photos . And while I think I may add some hooks on the side {for pot holders, towels, and such} and a chalkboard {for grocery lists, menu ideas, and such}, I just can't bring myself to change anything on it at all because it's just so darn cute!
Here's the play kitchen:
The faucet knobs and stovetop knobs all turn. The under-sink cabinets open. The oven door opens and has a plexiglass window.

Baby M has a stainless steel sink and a cool backsplash faucet {modern & manly, no?}. He even has a flat-topped stove {way better than Mommy's 1978 appliance!}

And while I can't bring myself to alter it yet {only with the hooks/chalkboard}, I did accessorize with an apron during my Friday midnight sewing spree:
And without using a pattern or a tutorial, it fits and works pretty well.
My next sewing project will be some felt food {check out Homemade By Jill's post on making felt food with fantastic tutorial links!}, but I picked up a $5 plastic bin at Target to hold Baby M over for now.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE our new kitchen!

I love it, too!!! They did a great job. I love all the little touches that make it so real.

Thanks Rachel! Would love to host a "cooking playdate" if y'all were ever down this way =)
