Trash to Treasure: Play Kitchen Hutch from Thrift Store Finds

I had made a little play kitchen hutch for my daughter before, as well as refurbished an old Disney princess table I got for free. Along with a Pottery Barn stove I got on Craigslist, my daughter plays with this little play kitchen almost every single day. This is why I couldn’t resist making another play kitchen hutch from thrift store finds I got the other day at Goodwill.

Materials:

Here is the little table and wood shelving I found.  I got both of them for $9.50 total. Great deal, right? There were a few nicks and scratches but nothing too bad.

I spot sanded a few areas to smooth out some blemishes.

After I cleaned it off from dust, I primed both pieces first and then painted it white. A two in one paint and primer is the quickest, but I used what I had, which was a spray primer and white Krylon spray paint

I bought the same fabric that I use to line Mia’s other play kitchen hutch I made. I used a rotary cutter to measure and cut the pieces. Next I sprayed them with a little spray starch and ironed them flat.  This makes it easier to insert later.

Next, once the paint was dry, I used a spray adhesive on both the shelf backing and the back of the fabric and smoothed it right into place.

Lastly, I used a maximum strength wood glue to attach the two pieces together.  I let it dry overnight and then I reinforced it with nails.

    1. Thanks you Gilly! I will be so sad when she grows out of it! We have a large playhouse in the backyard. It’ll be moved there first, and then sold. I don’t even want to think about that! Ha!

  1. Hi Dinah, This is adorable. Might have to keep my eye out for something like this & make one to gift the little ones I know. My kids would of loved this when they were little. My youngest is 13 now. Time flies! Pinned for later.
