We pulled C's old toy kitchen out of the basement for Alyra last week, and spent forever cleaning it off. It must have spent a decent amount of time outside at some point, because the stickers are nearly destroyed and the whole thing is faded. I was thinking I'd put some Contact paper over parts of it, upgrade the peeling butcher block counter to granite, and so on, but then I remembered seeing this Cozy Coupe upgrade.

So how do we make Alyra's kitchen REALLY cool? Should we turn it into a mad scientist's lab? A bar? A compounding pharmacy? Or should we thumbtack red-and-white striped paper around all the trim and make a toaster cozy out of a cardboard box? The submittor of the best idea will win the right to generate print-ready graphics; we'll provide the full-page sticker paper.

We've had at least seven hits since I posted, and no other ideas??? Or even links to biohazard symbols???

Red & white CHECKS!

Maybe it could be a stall for the Farmers'Market, or a curbside vegetable stand.

Definitely red and green with the jewel tea dishes from Camp! (Mouse droppings optional.)

Maybe I should bring the whole kitchen up for the whole family to decorate tomorrow-
