DIY Kids Play Boutique

diy kids play boutique

Paris Party Playstand Week continues today with the boutique.  If you're just joining in, on Monday I shared the diy kids patisserie playstand I had built for my friend Stefanie at Brooklyn Limestone.  She put together the most beautiful Paris themed birthday party for her daughter and I built the playstands below:

All the finish work including the painting and lettering plus all the styling details are spot on, isn't this amazing?!  I want Stefanie to be my mom.

I'm sharing the free plans to build the boutique down below.

They are all so adorable! My friend's mom wants to do a little play area/store for her Grandkids, I think these will be perfect.

So I have just discovered your blog, and I am IN LOVE!!! I started my own blog over a year ago, and although I think my content is excellent, I can never get my pictures to look so clean and crisp like yours and so many other blogs. The amount of work you have put into creating such fantastic tutorials is truly amazing. Thank you!!! (If you want to check out my blog, it is before3pm.com)

I saw the play boutique on brooklynlimestone's blog, and thought it was absolutely adorable! So, my husband and I - okay I only did the painting - decided ti make it for our granddaughter's 3rd birthday, and it was an instant hit! Now all she and her little sister want to do is play dress up. Thank you so much for sharing the plans! :)
