Repurposed Kids Play Kitchen Hutch
Easy Repurposed Kids Play Kitchen Hutch from Thrift Store Finds
I had yet ANOTHER successful trip to the Goodwill where I found this old red and white play hutch that I thought was too cute to pass up for $9.99. I knew I needed to hunt for a second piece to complete this repurposed kids play kitchen hutch I had in my head. It just so happens that my best friend was storing an old wooden vanity table in my garage… and guess what? She said I could have it…FOR FREE!!! So, here’s what I ended up doing with these two fab pieces.
Materials I used
- Old kids play hutch and kids table
- Electric sander
- Spray paint
- Drop cloth
- Spray adhesive
- Painter’s tape
- Wooden knobs (3)
Here is the hutch BEFORE. It had painted drawers and little flowers on it. It’s a little scratched and warped on the bottom but for ten bucks, I was OK with that!
Here is the vanity table BEFORE. This was caked with paint.
Repurposed Kids Play Kitchen Hutch Instructions
Both were pretty beat up so I had to break out the electric sander. The table had survived two previous makeovers.
I spray painted both of them white.
I measured and cut three pieces of fabric to fit the three bottom shelves. There was fabric left over from the little upholstered stool I made over.
Next, I attached the fabric strips to the hutch with spray adhesive.
Next, I liked the fake drawers that the hutch had originally, so I taped off three drawers and painted them blue (of course).
I added little knobs that I had left from an old dresser I upcycled a while ago. Since the bottom of the hutch was hollow and the way the hutch and table aligned, I had to use an industrial strength E6000 glue to attach the two together.
Here are a few AFTER photos. I love that it matches the repurposed toy storage stuffed animal cage I made and the upcycled play table I painted.
That is truly adorable! And a great way to upcycle those two pieces!
Wow! This is such a great idea! I really love how it turned out!! Allyson@Domestic Superhero

Thank you Tracie! On my way to check out your page!
You are a genius. I am so impressed with your repurposing skills. I don’t even think I spelled the word right, let alone could use electric power tools and industrial strength glue!
This turned out really cute!
Thank you, Jill!

Hi Dinah, This turned out so cute! I was sad when my youngest outgrew the kitchen set, but now she helps me in the kitchen & loves to bake. Great makeover!
Thank you, Theresa! I was just thinking that the other day… they grow up way too fast!
You can extract the beauty out of anything.
