After seeing some awesome vintage play kitchens for kids, Kayla Danelle decided to tackle her own repurpose and make one for her son. Kayla’s dad got in on the action and tracked down a set of upper kitchen cabinets to transform into the kitchen set. I love how this came out and the genius idea to reuse old cabinets. Why start from scratch when the work’s already done for you {Wink}?

Barn lights can be uber expensive, but Mary from At Home on the Bay found a way to turn an inexpensive IKEA pendant into a barn light look-a-like for her kitchen. It really was as simple as spray painting the pendant and popping in an Edison bulb for a more authentic look. I am currently redecorating my living room with aqua and yellow and totally dig the entire look Mary has going here!
