Oh Boxing Day...

So here it is... the day after Christmas. I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends, I know I did. Unfortunately, now I'm looking at the piles of presents we got and wondering where I'm going to put everything. That means that I get to organize all this week! Should be an interesting task since we are still full-blown in renovations.

This year, I tried to do a little more handmade in my gift giving. I made photo calendars and scrapbooks, and things like that, but my favourite present that we made was for my almost-2-year-old daughter. Her favourite thing to do in our house right now is to go through my pots and pans and utensils so that she can make us "pie" or "oatmeal". I had been pinning these adorable little kitchens for a while now and decided that I would attempt one.

I had a side table in my storage that I had been keeping for this project. I decided which elements I would want to use for it and then I put it all together with the help of my wonderful hubby. Yesterday morning, when Bella saw it, she was so excited! It is her favourite toy this Christmas and the total cost of it was... drum roll please.... $7!

Here's a breakdown for you:

- side table = free
- bowl for the sink = $2
- kitchen tap = free (carved by my hubby and father-in-law)
- fabric = free ( I already had it on hand)
- stove elements = free ( painted on with black paint)
- spray paint = $5 from Lowes

I'm so proud of it and Bella absolutely loves it. There's still a few things on it that I would like to finish - like painting the tap a metallic colour, but all in all, it's pretty good!

How was everyone's Christmas?
