It's not unusual for my children to have quite different ideas about what they would like to bring home on our op shopping trips than I do. This spice rack/cupboard was a treasured find a few years ago now by my daughter who was five at the time. I'm certainly not it's biggest fan, I'd even relocated it to the garage, ahem. Once it was discovered in the garage I gave some sweeping reassurances that I had a plan for it, a makeover. I wasn't so sincere in my reassurances if I'm being totally honest, I actually had serious plans to relocate it to the opshop.
But when these little mini grocery items started appearing at hour house (a giveaway with purchase at a local supermarket) I found some inspiration. I removed the doors and gave it a quick sand down. I had some white spray paint and gave it a couple of quick coats before I ran out of paint.
It's not perfect, but the kids seem to be having a great time playing with this mini food, taking it on and off the shelves. It keeps it off the floor too which is a bonus.
Now if all my "relocated" projects were so easy to finish and transform I'd be happy!
