Got the kitchen area and toddler area pretty much finished! Once the Christmas tree is put up, I am going to move the cubbies, but it's progress!
I love the little kitchen cubbies! We just got our first playfood today for dd so I'm trying to figure out how to rearrange things. It's terrible because I'm such a packrat that it makes it difficult to keep things super neat and so her play area is always a disaster. Hope to keep getting some great ideas here!

Very impressed with the stable!!

Thanks, everyone. I can't believe I waited so long to make cubbies. They are so useful! Right now she has a bookshelf, but it's so deep, it's easy to overlook everything and kind of dark. I can't wait to get the tree out and rearrange again. I am going to make playstands as soon as I get tax return money and can buy a saw and some poplar.

The kitchen is kinda crowded but our kitchen is so oddly laid out, that's the best I can do! And we don't have a playroom, either. We have a library with no space left and a living/dining room that seconds as the playroom.

Rollercoastermama, I hear you! Thats what we are doing. No more play roo, but part of the living room and kitchen. We are still unpacking too. I can't remember if I posted this 'in progress' pic though:

LOVE the cubby idea. Makes much more sense that the set ups we have for our 3 dollhouses ~ one is on the dress up trunk, one is on a bench & one is on a little table. The cubbies might steer the kids away from making additional "houses" on the bookshelves.

How did you fasten the "walls" of this cubby system? It looks super easy to make (easier than all of the MAPLE trees that we made for Christmas! ~ I'll post pictures of these soon ~ I only had blue & green watercolors so I haven't painted the trunks. After I get some red & mix up a brown shade & finish them, I can apply the beeswax finish & they'll be complete!)

I'm wondering what king of glue everyone uses. We have Elmer's carpenter's wood glue which is the only glue I could find that conforms to the ASTM non-toxic regulations. I also have Titebond premium wood glue which is FDA approved for indirect food contact (cutting boards) & non-toxic. I need to glue the stairs on Dd2's dollhouse & am not sure which to use.

Wondering if the cubbies are glued or fastened with screws...

I bought ours from an un-finished wood store but ours are screwed and/or nailed, not glued. We try to avoid glues as much as possible after reading 'home safe home'.
hth!

Well, it took me a lot longer than I expected to update with pics from our new place.We don't have a playroom in this house but the girls have half of our kitchen (b/c we couldn't use it). You can see it here:

The rest of their things are in the living room, our bedroom and their bedroom. More pics someday soon

Omgoodness nicole it looks amazing!!!

You have no idea the inspiration you are giving me. After this huge move, i was feeling as if life will never settle, but your house looks amazing!!

It also makes me realize how badly our kitchen needs a beeswaxing!!

i so love this thread!

We are hopfully moving to to a "new" home for us, and hopfully with space for a "play area". I do so hope we are finally able to move, as I can't wait to get all our things out of storage and re-set up!

Thanks! I am sad to say that is really the only space in our house that's 'together'.

wow, love the barn! Having one made by Jalu Toys on Etsy that is similar. I took all the positive and negative comments re: all the barns out there, mixed them with my own thoughts/feelings and came up with something I think will be great. Yours is similar...great minds and all that! Thanks for sharing the pics.

 MUST know more about the barn Jalu is making for you. Would you mind sharing pics and approx price? We LOVE their work and we're on the hunt for a barn

Eric is finishing it up today!!!! Im so excited!! Two of my friends are already waiting for him to make them one, too. Found him after a long search for the PEFECT barn..I obsessively read all the posts re: barns/stables on that thread, more than once...and I decided what I liked, didn't like about all of them...I loved the openess of the Elves and Angels barn, but it had way too many stables and not enough floor space for animals to stand. I liked all the light, but also realized that I would never be able to put that barn against a wall....The smaller Kinderkram/waldorf type barns were too short, too dark and too small.  And had too many stables for their size. The one without stables inside looked more like a house to me. The very fancy multi colored, plywood Ostheimer  or is it  spielholz barn was a bit too whimsical for me (though gorgeous) but also looked too storybook for me, if that makes sense....and it, too, was dark and I felt the access for my son would be difficult. I even looked at stables from Breyer etc. I have mostly OStheimer/Kinderkram and Buntspechte animals so the scale on the more commercial wooden barns on Amazon might not have worked. Plus I did want to try and have it simple and open=ended....went back and forth on red vs. plain wood.  But the Jalu one has the roofline of a true American barn, pitched etc. and I really liked that. 

 

Anyway, long story even longer, I liked the small stable and chicken coop that Eric from Jalu made. I searched his sold pics, found a barn and then emailed him about changing things....I added a door, made it longer, moved the stalls around etc. etc. He was great to work with, was planning on making some of the changes to his design anyway and now Im just waiting.....should get it by Monday...cannot wait.


And I WILL post pics here and on the barn thread, if I can find it again!

 

Happy New Year,

 

Andrea

If anyone has a Kinderkram Snow Queen figurine they'd be willing to sell to me, used or new, or knows where to get one (as they are discontinued) please let me know!

Thank you!!!

Andrea

The alphabet cards are from eeboo and the canopy silk was from a seller on E-Bay. I can't find them on there anymore, though :( Sorry!
