Play Kitchen Makeover- The Reveal

My first kitchen makeover is complete and it isn’t even a REAL kitchen.  Geez! 

Kid's kitchen

Some of you probably think I am a little crazy for painting and ripping up a perfectly good play kitchen, but ever since this kitchen had to be placed in a very visible place (my living room) there were only 2 options in my mind.

  1. Get rid of it because it was so kid-ish and outdated
  2. Complete a makeover. 

Because I try to keep the peace in my house- I chose Option 2. (I am so nice!)

I will not lie it was very time consuming only because I waited a VERY LONG TIME between spray paint coats – like months- oops!  Well, it is done now and my kids are THRILLED and I am thrilled because it does not seem to be such an eye soar.

Here are the steps I took…

Spray Paint Top Surface

Spray Paint with Krylon Fusion Spray paint for plastic.  I used 2 cans.  WARNING..cover the entire surface extra well…

I painted the faucet silver with Metallic Plastic Paint.  You know…make it real looking.

With vinyl I replaced most of the stickers…

A little chemistry lesson never hurt anyone.  ha! 

Lastly, I added window panels in the pantry area.  I used sticky velco adhere them.

Ready for the kids and some delicious meals they will be preparing!

That pretty much sums it up.  My kids are happy, and I am happy!!

Hope you enjoyed.  I am sharing this here.

Cute and simple - the nice thing is you now know that the paint is fully cured and that you've reduced the risk of it being scratched off to the absolute minimum!! :)
