IKEA DUKTIG PLAY KITCHEN MAKEOVER

I really enjoyed doing this little makeover project for recently. My daughter has spent hours each day playing with it since we gave it to her at Christmas!

If your toddler loves pretending to ‘cook’ then it might be time to invest in a play kitchen, so your tot can have their own little space and you can get on with making dinner without tripping over a small person every two minutes. IKEA’s trusty Duktig kitchen is a great option – it’s affordable , sturdy, easy to build and the hob lights up thanks to batteries concealed beneath. What’s not to love?

Well, it’s a bit boring. The grey plastic handles, the white and beige cabinets – it’s all perfectly practical but not particularly pretty. So, here’s how to ‘hack’ your Duktig so it’s super-stylish. Of course, your toddler will not care what this kitchen looks like. But you have to look at it for the next 4 years or so, so it might as well be gorgeous!

The taps, hanging rail, hooks and hob surround were painted gold, the worktop was covered with marble-effect sticky-back-plastic and a vintage ceramic tap insert was fixed to the tap using superglue.

The grey plastic handles were swapped for stylish brass ones and brass drawer knobs were fitted above the oven to provide turn-able dials.

The kitchen was painted dark grey and the cubby holes were lined with pretty Liberty-print fabric.

A brass coat hook was fitted to the side of the kitchen for a toddler’s apron and tiny shopping basket, then mini accessories were sourced at charity shops, on eBay and from IKEA.
