Would You Like Fries With That?

Ellie and Emily got a kitchen last Christmas and I was so sad that they didn't really play with it. Now that Emily is old enough to play with Ellie they are finally playing with it:) Ellie loves playing restaurant so we thought we would make the kitchen more of a diner area. Chris cut a piece of wood and I painted it white and we attached it to the wall for a little bar area. I painted chalk board paint above it for writing out menu items or writing whatever. We added a service bell (which they LOVE) and empty ketchup and mustard bottles. I got cute little dinner chairs from IKEA and now they have a there own little restaurant.

Adorable. Chalkboard paint is so awesome.

Good times! We have a very similar kitchen set. Our microwave is on bottom and there is no cabinet, but it appears to be the same brand. I love how sturdy it is, and how it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, which leaves a lot for their imaginations. Glad your littles are finally enjoying it!
