I am so excited to show this project and wanted to wait until it was completely finished—well, after nearly three months, it’s done (yes, I know…it’s been a little while…I get bored and distracted when I have multiple projects going on at the same time and I tend to put stuff for myself and the family to the side…)! This was a Christmas Gift for the Robug, and I have just finished the fabric-work.
The idea for the kitchen came from this blog. I saw what they had did and KNEW I had to do that for the Bug. We got very lucky at the last minute, thanks to Papa and Grammy, to get the TV stand we “upcycled.” I had started looking at garage sales and thrift stores for a piece of furniture beginning in July, and we didn’t get anything until the end of November. I was going to do this project by myself, but I
asked my husband for help let my husband help because though I am thoroughly capable of using our power tools, I don’t do it well at all he wanted to make something special for his little girl 🙂
Because I had seen the Eric Carle The Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric and HAD to find something to make with it, the fabric dictated the whole kitchen scheme. And, because it would be just too cute, I used this tutorial and free pattern to make a matching apron, oven mitt, and hot pad. Come on, look at it, I couldn’t help myself 🙂
Did you happen to notice that the “window” is reversible? Yes, reversible!!! I mean, come on, what else would you do with a sun panel and a moon panel? It’s only natural 😉 (and not to mention just too cute).
Robug LOVES her kitchen and Mommy & Daddy love that we made it. Because I am a perfectionist, the whole thing cost us about the same amount money as if we had purchased one, but it’s special (the fabric was the priciest part) and that’s all that matters.
