To get started I'm sharing a play kitchen makeover I just did for my daughter's 2nd birthday. We knew we wanted to get her one for her birthday for awhile now, so when a used one popped up online for $50 we snatched it up. It's made by KidKraft and when I researched I found it retails for anywhere from $140 - $199. So $50 sounded pretty good to me. We've had it for a few months and I just decided last Wednesday that it needed to painted! Leave it to me to wait until the last minute.... a door had fallen off and instead of putting it back on I wanted to replace it with a cute ruffled cover. Once the cover was made I decided it made the kitchen look drab in contrast, plus it had some wear and tear that needed some attention. So without further ado.....
I wiped it down, removed all the hardware and taped paper in the microwave and oven openings so I wouldn't get overspray in there.
After just one coat of spray paint+primer I was already loving it!
I just used gray primer on the hardware and one coat of polyurethane.
Baaddd pictures, I know, but at this point it was dark outside and I was scrambling trying to get done.
The finished product!!
Isn't the ruffled cover adorable? I have to give my Mom the credit, she whipped it up for me!
And a side by side comparsion:
Much better, right? I think so!
