IKEA duktig kitchen hack


So I've had this kitchen set over a year now that I scored at the thrift store for $8. It was in rough condition but I knew it was something that could be fixed. And now I finally did it! I love the end result. And the total spent on it was only $12 which was for the beautiful wrapping paper I bought from Rifle Paper Co. All other materials I had from previous projects. 

Here's a list of what I used 
Krylon glitter blast
Krylon Gold Metallic Spray paint 
Kilz primer/sealer/stainblocker
Glidden paint in color Salmon 
Modge Podge 
Foam brush
Paint roller  
Elmers Foam Board 

Step 1: Cleaned it all up and removed the white doors and handles. 
Step 2: To avoid sanding the whole thing I gave it two coats of Kilz primer. It did have some water damage that I fixed by sanding it. 
Step 3: Apply desired paint with foam roller and small brush for small areas. I gave it two coats
Step 4: Final step is to seal it. I used polycrylic after 24 hours of applying paint. 

Handles/Sink and Stove
These were spray painted with metallic gold paint and then sprayed with glitter blast. After completely drying I also sealed it with polycrylic. 

Backsplash 
I wanted to work with what I had, so I used foam board for the back. Which initially I was going to buy some plywood but since that piece is towards the wall I figured it would be ok with the foam board (fingers crossed) I used these beautiful wrapping sheets from Rifle Paper Co 
This was an easy proccess, Just apply with mod podge (check this tutorial if first time using it) I nailed it to the back so it's nice and sturdy. 
And that's it.

  1. Beautiful! The kitchen on the ikea website has a backing behind the microwave and upper shelves. Did you just not use that part? and use the foam board for the whole back side?

  4. I love it! You have inspired me to start this project for my daughter. I have a question...your list of material says Krylon gold metallic spray paint but your picture shows a BRASS can. Which one did you use? I do want the same finish as yours :) thanks!
