Vintage kitchen


A few months back, I showed you all a rather cute little kitchen that I had been given. I am guessing that it's about 40 years old and had obviously been well loved .
I had the idea of giving it a makeover and sending it to santa for Isla-Rose.
It sat in the garage for many months and I was begining to think I wouldn't get round to cleaning it up, luckily my wonderful father in law took the task in hand ( thankyou John ).
The kitchen was sanded and repainted and then given back to me to do the pretty bits, so here are the before and after photos...


Before


After
 


Pretty lining in the drawers.
 I can't wait for her to see it, I am going to have it all set up for her, ready for her to play with straight away, the cupboards will be stocked with cups, saucers, pots and pans. Cakes, biscuits, sandwiches and a basket of fruit will also be waiting for her.
How exciting!!!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on the earwarmers from my last post.
Speak soon.xx

Thanks, Jacey! I had a look on Etsyfor the Japanese craft books, I think Ebay works out a bit cheaper, they are between £15 to £22ish, that includes delivery. Ahh, I want all of them! Great to hear my patterns are liked! They are on Ravelry, my user name is KrissyKasko.
Have a nice week!x
