Transform your Duktig IKEA play kitchen with Autentico Paint

I have been working on this project for the last few days, after putting it off for over 2 years and I am so happy with how it has turned out!  If you have children under the age of 5, you most likely have one of these play kitchens in your home (or another companies equivalent!), personally I love the IKEA version of a play kitchen. Its got that Scandi design which fits in really well with the styling of my home. This is the original that you can get from IKEA... Now, it is really pretty as it is,...

Folding Chairs painted with Amble Sea, Everlong Chalk Paint

Recently, I have been trying to step away from the whites and greys that have been dominating the pieces that I have been painting and inject some colour into my life! Don't get me wrong, the neutral colours go in pretty much any room decor and have a timeless quality, but sometimes you just want something a bit different, right?
