I mentioned in this post that I recently did a bit of dumpster diving. Check it out because there’s a really adorable photo of Graycen but I digress. Anyhow to summarize – apparently it was my lucky day, after all it was my birthday, and chance was on my side. I had been talking for weeks about wanting a play kitchen for our son but grumbling about how expensive those suckers are. Then low and behold, I find a wooden play kitchen stove in a pile of New York City trash.

My friend Stacie asked if I would share some images of our find. So, if you recall, I also mentioned that we picked up a child’s table that was also being trashed. It was old school vintage and I couldn’t dare pass it up. The bigger problem was that I had just purchased a small table for Graycens room like 2 weeks prior to this find which has left us over run with kid stuff. Our living quarters are now cramped with things while I figure out our next steps but here’s where things stand as of this weekend.
You can see the before nursery photos here but basically what I ended up having to do was to move Graycen’s crib so that it’s parallel to his closet doors rather then against the wall. Not ideal but it’s working and the changes are slowly growing on me.
The stove shows some wear and tear but it’s definitely lovely, no? And tell me you love the painters tape as wall adhesive. I think it’s pretty clever.
And just for reference, here is what the table looked like when we found it. I was scared of what I might find under the 80′s wallpaper but apparently it was nothing scary.
