DIY Kids play kitchen

When I scored this kitchen set for free. Yes, FREE I knew it was going to need a full makeover. I mean looking at this ahem *beauty*. As a neutral lover I couldn’t stand the idea of this many colors in my house. haha.  Bring me ALLLLLL the black, white, gray and gold. I mean what more do you need? Seriously?

Lets take a moment and admire the beauty that is the BEFORE.

It was bad you guys. haha. Well loved and too many colors for my eyes. 

Enter lots of tender loving care.

First up was to take off all the hardware. Easy enough. I then painted each set white. This probably helped transform them the quickest and helped me get a vision for the complete transformation.  I was able to just do two coats of paint. The biggest pain in a** was painting inside the kitchen sets. But hey, its done and it looks great.

 

I also spray painted the “sink” aka baking pan black. I was hoping to find something to replace it but its functional. So I kept it. And it saved me a good $20. Finding a play kitchen sink is nearly impossible FYI.

Next up was applying the marble contact paper for the counters. Happy to say it was super easy to cut, and apply. Highly suggest doing this on your DIY kitchen. It completely  transforms the kitchen. And for under $10 it is the biggest bang for your buck on a kids kitchen. My BFF joked my sons kitchen is going to be better than hers.

TIP FOR APPLYING MARBLE CONTACT PAPER: The marble contact paper is extremely sticky duh! So learn from me and I don’t cut it longer than you need cause your paint WILL peel off. 

Marble Contact Paper: $9:  Amazon 

I also changed out the hardware. I knew I wanted gold hardware for his play kitchen. I was able to score these on amazon for under $15 for a set of five of them. Perfect size for little man.   Gold Handles: $15/5pk : Amazon  



Well what do you think? Would love to hear what you think of the transformation.

Apartment Tour | Neutral Modern Nursery Toddler

If you know me you know I LOVE neutrals. My favorite color in that spectrum hands down being white. I need white walls and big windows for my heart to come alive. When I saw the light in this space I KNEW this was our new home. I have surprisingly loved NOT having curtains which surprises me more than anyone. I love a good set of floor to ceiling drapes but the light and windows are just to good to cover in any way. So the only room that has curtains is my room.

 

His rocking horse was a hand me down that was re-painted with his name on the back. He loves his “neigh, neigh”

I love me a good fiddle fig plant. I found this cute little fiddle fig leaf for $4 at Michaels this summer! SCORE! (Side note, all my fiddle figs I have scored for $5 or under. Um thank you JESUS!)

His Azteca Natural rug from Lorena Canals is one of my favorite rugs for a kids room because of how easy it is to clean. I can just throw it in the wash!! With a toddler, that is necessary at times 😉 Its under $250 too and comes in two sizes HERE.


I made his ‘son you are a legend’ sign for his nursery and loved it so much I decided to keep it in his new space. Just a reminder for him as he grows up.

My favorite thing in his room has to be his play kitchen that I did a complete 180 to that he I gave to him as his christmas gift this year. And yes, a diy blog post is coming next week on how I did it all for under $50. Consider this a sneak peek 😉
