a DIY Christmas present for a little girl


We actually did what we set out to do.

We built Lacey a kitchen for Christmas.

So, the picture it a little blurry because I took it on my phone, but you get the idea. My dad helped us with the actual building of the kitchen because we own nothing in the way of tools.

He built the shell, we accessorized.

My favorite thing is the faucet. Pottery Barn Kids was nice enough to give us one of their extra faucets. Bless their hearts. It's tough work finding a child's size faucet.

So now we are going to load up the shelves and the fridge and let her get cooking!

NICE! She's going to love it! Laura cooks us up meals all the time. Her latest creation was a book cake. A plate, with a book on it... and then she put her cup on it and called it a "hot milk book cake" - and instructed us to blow on it :) So cute what their little minds think of.

I am SO SO SO SO impressed! Care to share how you did it?

So cute! I love that you did a DIY project instead of pony over the $500 or so to PB! :)

Steph, we were at PB and Mike comes over and says "I wished we would have just bought this one, it's only $250"

Until I pointed out it was $250 for each piece and there are 3 pieces...

I'll save my $750 for another day. Thanks.
