Play Kitchen Inspiration

Monkey Man loves to "help" me around the house.

he helps me re-cover the patio chairs...

he helps load the dishwasher ...

and he loves to help me "cook".
{aka pull all the pots out of the cabinet and bang them on the ground}

I really want him to have a play kitchen!
But I'm picky ...
I want a small one that we'll always have room for.
{we're military and move ALL the time}
I wanted one appropriate for boys.
{no pink. no ruffles}
I wanted one that would last a long time.
{no plastic}
I wanted something simple.
{So he has to use his imagination}

There are some AMAZING kitchens out there ...
this one from Pottery Barn was my all time favorite!

but the $219.00 price tag made me want to cry...

So I started googling DIY kitchens ...
and wow! People are talented!
{just google it, you'll see!}

Here are a few of my favorites!

and this one is totally girly ... but I LOVE IT anyways!
The colors are wonderful (and so is that exposed brick! ahhh).

So I took my inspiration and I got to work ...
I can't wait to show you what I came up with! :)
I'm almost done!!

Just in time for the movers to pack it away ...
oh, you didn't know we were moving?
Yup - SOON!
Like next week soon.
I'll tell you about that too!
