Tropical DIY Play Kitchen Makoever – ORC week 3

Come see how I gave a play kitchen a tropical glow up! This makeover only involved spray paint and simple accessories from the home!

Hello hello and welcome to week 3 of the One Room challenge! If you haven’t caught up with my room makeover I suggest reading about Week 1 and Week 2 before we see what’s going on right now! All caught up? Perfect! Let’s dive into this week’s DIY Play Kitchen Makeover for the ORC.

We left off at the Board and Batten wall which I have now finished and am in love with! I went with a moody green color called Current Mood by Clare Paint. Here it is in action:

So this week I worked on Zaki’s play kitchen makeover DIY project which I had started a while ago but left off to do other project work. His play kitchen was cute, but not the cutest so of course I had to give it a paint job! It started off like this:


First I tried to paint it with a roller and some leftover interior paint but that was a massive fail – the paint wouldn’t go on smooth and just kept peeling off. I then turned to trusty old spray paint. I ordered some online in Heirloom White which is a nice warm creamy tone. I already had some gold acrylic paint at home which i applied with a brush onto the hardware. Remember the tropical wallpaper on Zaki’s ceiling? Well, I have a ton leftover and of course I used some as backsplash for this play kitchen makeover.

I only ended up using 2 cans of spray paint because I already had a layer of paint on it but other people have used as many as 5.

Once the kitchen set got a fresh coat of spray paint all it needed was some fun styling elements! I got creative with what I had at home (cause no Home Goods, duh) and ended up using real bowls and some baskets to accesorize! Here is the after:

Isn’t it the cutest thing?! At least I have one tiny corner of this playroom makeover down!! Now I’m only left with the 249274938 other things for this One Room Challenge, haha. Go and check out what other folks are up to this week and come back next week to see if I’ve managed to put some shelves up!
