How to build a dream play kitchen -Kidkraft Play Kitchen makeover

Bored with our 5 year old play kitchen and uninspired by the new ones on the market, I transformed our old play kitchen into a fun designer showpiece for my daughters. Keep reading for ideas and resources to help you get the look, too.
We got this Kidkraft Play kitchen when my oldest was five years old (she's now 11😍).  It's been well loved over the years and had many nicks and scratches, even a broken door. We had moved multiple times since we first got it and it was now in a shared space in our basement. So, I decided it was time we updated this little kitchen and made it fit more our style. 
My daughters love to be in the kitchen. They love to mimic mama in the kitchen! It's the one toy that gets daily play, several hours a day. So, I was excited for the challenge to make their kitchen feel like-new again!
I had some left over wall paper from my modern farmhouse laundry room transformation, so I used it for the back splash. The wallpaper is a little pricey (fromS&L) but like I said, I already had it on hand. So, it was exactly what I needed to make this kitchen look high-end.
I painted the inside and outside of the cabinets Behr Starless Night. I left the sides white, to avoid excess work. I really love how sleek that color combo looks.

I spray painted all the fixtures, handles and sink with Krylon Color Master metallic. And as you can see I also painted the grocery kart gold😁.  

It took about a day for everything to dry, it was well worth the effort! Doesn't it look so cute?
