It has been a while since I have made some projects so I thought it was time I get back on the horse!  A few weeks ago I got and email from a girl in my ward who was organizing a hair bow exchange.  If you have girls you know you can never have enough bows!  I was excited to participate :)  Here is what I will be bringing to the exchange! I'm pleased with how they turned out and I hope the other ladies will agree!
My next project is one that I think will take me a LONG time to do.  My goal is to finish it for Elise's 2nd birthday.  If it takes me longer than 10 months I think we will have a problem ;) 

Here it is!  I want to make a play kitchen for Elise!  I have seen so many ideas all over the web and have a bunch of ideas for this little cabinet!  I'm going to put a sink and stove on the top and with the cabinet I will have one be an oven the other I think I will have it be a mini fridge.  With the open slot I'm planning to put up a tiny curtain and that is where Elise can store all of her pots and pans to play with.  I can't even tell you how excited I am to get going and to see the end result.  The first thing I need to do is sand....ugghh.  The worst part!  Wish me luck! 
This play kitchen is my inspiration.  Image and tutorial found here.  Cross your fingers for me that mine can look at least half as cute as this one!

Looks like lots of fun. I don't think my little man would care for a play kitchen, but I can't wait to make one one day.

P.S. And maybe you already know this, but you don't have to sand your furniture in order to paint over it. I've redone tons of furniture and yet to sand anything down. Unless there are major rough edges, you can literally paint over anything. Just FYI incase sanding is keeping you from getting started.

Oh good luck! I love the idea and think that you found the perfect furniture piece as the base. That seems like it would be the hardest part to me. Can't wait to see how it goes.

That will be so cute!! Sanding totally is the worst, I have a table I'm excited to paint but the thought of sanding makes me ill so I haven't been able to start yet!
