Being a former cooking instructor, Salvage Sister loves to see kids in the kitchen. And what could be more fun than having their very own kitchen to cook right alongside you?
When I saw her play kitchen makeover, I was in love!!!!! Too much adorableness.
Sara says -“This was a fun and easy DIY.”
Now this one was in pretty good shape, but most of these that are hand-me-downs aren’t in that great of condition. This DIY project will help give them new life again.
- Using a scrub brush and warm soapy water, clean the item well.
- Before painting, remove all the knobs, stove top, sink etc. These were secured with screws and easy to remove. (You may want to bag and label your items for ease when putting it back together.)
- Sand the main kitchen.
- The main kitchen was painted using this spray paint.
- The hardware was painted using THIS.
- Once all is evenly applied and dry, you can reassemble it.
*Here is a handy how to video if you need one.
**Make sure to read all the instructions for proper handling of the spray paint (label on each can).
Often times, things just need a little TLC to bring them up to “code”. Not only was this saved from a potential garbage collection (yep, things like this get thrown away every day!), but it saved serious money. A new play kitchen can run over $100.
