Matthew and Lily’s play kitchen in our family room continues to be the toy of choice for children who visit our home. Each time my best friend Sandra’s daughter Hannah comes over she asks “Can I go downstairs to play with the kitchen?” no more than five minutes after coming inside. Sandra and I knew that a kitchen for Hannah was a must-have for an upcoming birthday or Christmas or even Easter so we made it happen.
After 5 weeks of working late into the night when the munchkins were sleeping I’m happy to say that Matthew’s room is finished! He asked for “green” and he got it - just not in the way he thought with painting the walls green.
It’s already Week 4 of the One Room Challenge sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens and what that really means is that there is only one week left to complete everything for Matthew’s Room prior to shooting!
Reducing, reusing and recycling - Redesign - is at the foundation of everything I do. I always try and incorporate vintage and antique elements and transform them to achieve a look that has been curated over time. This project is no exception and I’ll be bringing in several redesigned finds for the space.
