house work

For her second birthday, we fixed up a corner of our dining room to be Iris' play kitchen. For her third, we've given ourselves a new assignment: making her a playroom. Not that we've finished our own kitchen, mind you. But the beauty of an old house is that there is never a shortage of projects.

New paint colors – coming soon to a playroom near you!
