Painted Ikea MULA Walker | Baby DIY

For Christmas, I made a few little gifts for Willow. Mostly simple little projects that took little effort but were special to give her on her first Christmas. Here is how I painted an Ikea MULA Walker

It’s hard to even call this a DIY project since it’s just adding paint but hopefully this will give you an idea if you’re looking for a quick and rewarding project for your little one!

I used acrylic paint for mine because I already had it on hand. Of course, our daughter will be supervised so I’m not worried about her chewing on the walker and acrylic paint. If this is a concern of you I’d look in to non-toxic paint for toys.

Before assembling your walker, use painters tape to tape around the wood in the middle that you don’t want to paint. Next, tape around the wheels. Using sandpaper, lightly sand the green areas of the walker. Wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any debris from sanding. Lightly add a coat of paint at a time covering the green sections. I added three coats, letting them dry between each one. Optional: finish with a non-toxic clear coat. After your walker has completely dried, finish assembling your walker!
