The Tiniest Kitchen Renovation Reveal

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Guess who is the happiest girl on the block?  No, not Agatha but her mother who was so happy to have this tiny project done.  Not only because I just love how it turned out but also because Agatha's was so priceless - her face ace lit up, she cried out "kitchen!" and ran over to start playing immediately. The best! But enough of that, time for the big reveal.

A little bit more in keeping with my style, don't you think?

play kitchen found second hand but originally made by little colorado
**
backsplash is peel & stick smart tiles which were super easy to install and totally make the whole look! I just cut with a scissors, peeled and stuck.  (These are actually made for real kitchens so a good alternative to retiling if you don't want the hassle or have other restraints in case you are wondering. They look very authentic!)
**
paint was annie sloan chalk paint in graphite mixed with white
**
simple stainless hardware pulls and cup hooks from lowes
**
awesome play food from HABA  - agatha will not stop playing with these and is learning all of the words for the vegetables and fruits.  I love it all and am going to be collecting every piece they make!

That's it for now. I want to add some side storage and some interior shelving but my cordless saw was acting up so I put that upgrade on the back burner for now. In the meantime, Aggie is cooking up a pretend feast!

  1. That is SO cute. At first I was like "OMG did she TILE the backsplash?!" but the peel n stick is such a great idea. Amazing job!

  2. Oh my soul at the CUTENESS! Well done!

    A picture of Little Miss playing there would be the icing in the cake, hint, hint.

    1. Thanks. Im not 100% sure about the pots because I was given them second hand so no packaging but pretty sure they are these: http://www.amazon.com/Kitchen-Cookware-Playset-Cooking-Utensils/dp/B008MA2EOU/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1405527249&sr=8-6&keywords=toys+pots+and+pans

      I wash them in the sink like other dishes and they seem pretty durable although not as sturdy as the Melissa & Doug ones I would have bought if I hadn't gotten these.

    1. Yes totally. I actually wanted to make a little organizer pot rack thingymajig to hang from the right side but my saw decided not to work and it just felt too mean to keep the kitchen from aggie for weeks on end when she could be playing with it.

      Kind of like this but way, way smaller: http://www.target.com/p/wooden-shelf-with-s-hooks/-/A-14971968#prodSlot=medium_1_2&term=wall+shelf+with+hooks

  8. Aww that's so cute! And I also LOVE Annie Sloan chalk paints - they are great! I too just did a "tiny room reveal, how funny!" http://lifeonhillst.com/2014/07/11/the-tinest-room/

  9. This is amazing. If I'd had this kitchen back in the 70's when I was a kid...well, I might have been a Michelin starred chef! Bravo!

  13. Oh wow, Aggie's one lucky gal!! I could see her (or you ;-) whipping up some eggs Benedict in that charming space. I've been meaning to do something to Quinn's IKEA kitchen for the last year. Thanks for the inspiration!

  16. It's totally adorable. I think the tile is my favorite part. And I love it when the kiddos actually respond and react to something you made them. Heart. Bursting.
