Project Playroom: Storage Solutions

Can you spot what I added to the playroom project today?

Even a play kitchen needs smart storage solutions… I added 3 Ikea spice racks. They are the perfect width and height for play food and appliances!

I also added an Ikea storage rod for pots and pans:

The Ikea spice shelves are about $4 a piece…and a coat of spray paint can match them to any room:

I put up the shelves while Boo was at school and she loaded them up as soon as she got home!

Some recent additions to her kitchen that she got as gifts for her birthday (appliances from Pottery Barn Kids):

    Ashley it looks amazing! I’m sure she has a blast! My daughter Bella is turning 2 and she loves her kitchen and shopping cart, she can play with them all day! Where did you get the storage bins on her yellow shelves? Are the wooden? They are the perfect size! LMK….thanks!

    I see a doughnut!!!! :D

    I forwarding this to my sister, my niece has a play kitchen with a bunch of food and such and its usually spread across the floor in the play room.

    on another note about doughnuts……CONFESSION: I have never..had…a krispy creme doughnut! (if thats how you spell it). I live in Canada and I think we have the stores in the bigger cities. I dreamed about them last night….I really want one.

    Your playroom is fantastic Boo!!

    As Boo ages and the kitchen becomes “not so popular”, you can take those spice racks, attach them to a different space/wall and use them as book holders, like in the link below. That’s the main reason I bought mine from IKEA – for books! HA!

    So fun! I am a “grown up” and I could have fun in there! What a fun mom you are!!

    We love our Learning Resources cash register too! I have often lugged it along to craft fairs when I’m selling my needle felted toys, or use it at our garage sales. We have the battery version that has math and coin games on it, but this solar powered one is the version I bought for my neices and nephews 18 years ago and it still works! BEAUTIFUL play ktichen.

    It’s so amazing!!! All is perfect and so real! I want it….sniff! :-))

    Very nice! My kids have a play kitchen as well, I use to have a nice spot in the craft room for it, set up with shelves and all, but then…I NEEDED MORE ROOM! So I moved it out and into my little girl’s room. Oops! Now I have to figure out how to reorganize it to the max for full enjoyment.

    Ready, Set, Cater! Menus Please!
