Play Kitchen – The Curtains are Done!

If this is your first time joining me, the last 5 weeks I’ve been sharing about my first big DIY project: making a play kitchen. This week I was able to not fight with my sewing machine for the first time ever!  My sewing machine and I love to have battles who can get all tangled up in thread first.  Well my mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law made a great suggestion last time they were here visiting.  They suggested reading my sewing machine handbook to learn how to adjust the tension.  Wow, isn’t it funny how when you just read the instructions you don’t get tangled in thread?! That being said, I was able to make the curtains for the play kitchen this week without a single fight!  I also purchased the paint and a few more accessory items! YA

I can’t help but love this fabric!

We are 3 weeks out from the big reveal of the play kitchen to our nieces! It’s coming so fast and there is a few things left to do:



Paint the play kitchen

Paint the chalkboard

Install the shelving

Cut out window for the oven door

Install lighting in the oven and refrigerator

Install curtain rod

Install sink and faucet

Install stove top

Decorate with accessories (I can’t wait for this part!!)

I have to say our to do list is long, but our “accomplished list” is getting longer too!  Which is a great reminder of how much progress we have made.


Plan the layout and design of the play kitchen

Pick out fabric and paint

Buy an entertainment center

Buy all the necessary supplies – primer, paint, fabric, dowels, hardware, wood, sander, paint sprayer,  sand paper,  lighting, facet, sink, wood filler.  Just to name a few!

Sand the entertainment center

Sand the shelving and doors

Make the curtains

Paint appliance knobs

Paint stove top burners


Well until next week, have a great weekend!
