First, Ryan sanded down the whole play kitchen and then put on a coat of white paint on each side, let it dry and then put on a second coat. We didn’t use any primer or coating on the sides and they have all held up very well the last year.
Spray paint finishes
We spray painted the sink white and the rest of the finishes gold. We used a 2 in 1 primer plus paint spray paint. Everything has kept up well except for the sink.
The counter top
For the counter top, we bought this marble contact paper. We laid out the contact paper carefully over the whole countertop, and then used an exact knife to cut the holes for the sink and stove.
We just cut a simple x and then folded down the sides
Here is the countertop finished
For the backsplash we took white cardboard from Michaels and drew 3 x 5 tiles in the herringbone pattern. Then, we traced the pencil in permanent marker and applied an adhesive to stick it to the back of the kitchen.
We traded out the original microwave handle for a drawer pull we found at Home Depot
We also exchanged the oven handle. In the future, we want to install the oven door using a desk opener so it will actually pull down instead of being pulled to the side.
The flower was from target. We adhered some knobs we found at home depot under the stove to make it more realistic.
