Play Kitchen Makeover

I have been meaning to share this for a long time but am finally getting around to it. Last July my mother-in-law found a cute little kitchen set for me on Craigs List. She knew I was looking for either an old kitchen to redo or an old cabinet to turn into a kitchen. I was super excited when she found it and knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. The kitchen was missing a few doors and was a little beat up but I didn't care! :) The best part was that it only cost me $20!!!

Here is a picture of the before.

There was supposed to be two doors on the bottom. One side is supposed to be an oven and the other a dishwasher.

Step one:
I removed all the knobs and other pieces I wanted to paint silver to look like stainless steel.

Step two:
 I removed all the doors and then painted the whole thing this cute aqua color. I LOVE the color!

Step three:
I forgot to take picture of this step but I taped off the burners and put newspaper around them so I could spray paint them silver to match all the knobs and sink.

Step four:
 After all the paint was dried I put all the knobs and handles and other pieces back on. At this point all I had left to do was make the curtain I wanted to use to replace the missing doors and I would be done.

Step five:
I added the curtain I made and was done! Now my little girl plays with her fun little kitchen all the time. She absolutely loves it!

My overall cost was about $30! Not bad in my opinion! I got the aqua paint for free, the silver paint for about $3, the fabric cost me about $7, and the kitchen was $20.

I love how it turned out! What do you think?

  1. So cute!!! You've done a fabulous job! The ruffled curtain is such a clever way to cover those door spaces.
