Adding detail to our mud kitchen

By | May 24, 2015

A couple of weeks ago we made a mud kitchen for the children to play with. We recycled an old pallet and some planks of wood to make a simple structure with a work space and shelf to store utensils and equipment. It’s been a huge success but needed something to make it even better so today we added some detail and colour.

We have lots of tins of Annie Sloan chalk paint so decided to add the word ‘KITCHEN’ to the top in Annie Sloan English Yellow using card stencils from Poundland. Yes, that’s my husband using one of the children’s paint brushes to apply the paint!
