our new playroom : the kitchen daddy built

September 5th, 2011|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , |6 Comments

So I have received A LOT of emails about this little kitchen.This was our very first attempt at DIY stuff. It was all because I wanted a wooden kitchen for Noah {this is pre-Chloe!}, and all the wooden ones I could find were either huge, or pink. I wanted my son to have a kitchen to play with {I don’t believe that kitchens are ‘girl’ toys} but I didn’t want to give him a pink one!Finally I found a picture and instructions for a kitchen made from Ikea components. Well, we are Ikea nuts […]

garden make-over : the side of our house

September 2nd, 2011|Categories: A Little Delightful|Tags: , , |9 Comments

Well, we have been living in our ‘new’ house for just over 2 years and the other weekend we finally finished our garden. I call it the laundry side of our house, and it had been left to look like a rubbish tip. Needless to say it was not pleasant to go out and hang clothes on the washing line – and therefore I used my indoor clothes horse a lot {oh, and the dryer}. There’s something about their Mum’s coming to visit that launch husbands into proactive-ness. Not that I’m complaining, because I am […]

our new playroom : ikea expedit desk

Thank you all for such lovely lovely comments on our new playroom. We are still really loving the space and I’m also enjoying that I can close the door to pretend the mess is not there if need be.

Today I am sharing with you how we did our Ikea hacked […]

So remember our lovely little library courtesy of my brilliant husband?Well, we have another use for his fabulous creation. A supermarket. We gave our little girl a heap of felt food for her 1st birthday. She LOVES it, especially the tomato which happens to be one of her favourite foods. {These are the IKEA felt food sets}She can’t quite reach the top shelf {but I can’t either at my local supermarket!} :o}Lucky for her Noah is kind enough to take stuff down for her!I hope you have a lovely week ahead. I hope to be back to […]

diy home library

Earlier in the year we saw this idea on Ohdeedoh and we absolutely LOVED it. Only problem is we don’t have a lot of spare wall space in this house. Bummer. image via OhdeedohI said to my husband that one day, when we have a bigger house, I would love to do this for the kids. He said he’d just make one that we could stick anywhere, instead. Brilliant. I love my husband. And so he built this with some plywood, Ikea Bekvam spice racks {just $6.95 each!} and right angle brackets. And I […]
