My favorite thing to do once the kids are both asleep is to kick back in the living room with a good HGTV show and a glass of fizzy water. But I just can’t truly relax until all the toys are put away. But there are some things that you just can’t put away. Like the IKEA Baby Gym, for instance.
We originally got this little gym from the in-laws for Oliver for him to use while we were staying at the cottage. He loved it! And eventually used it to learn how to stand up and then pushed it around the house for his first few steps. Fast forward to now, this little play gym has a few scratches and I’ll be honest, the color scheme is not my favorite.
I had some leftover Fusion Mineral Paint from the Tones for Tots collection that we used to fix up a chest of drawers that we found on the side of the road. It calls our living room home and hides all the toys out of sight. I had been eyeing up the play gym for quite some time, waiting for the right time to make my move. On a nice sunny day, I opened up the garage door and set to work! You can see the transformation in the video below:
