play kitchen for under $200

this has got to the cutest hack ever. zen bliss put together an absolute doll of a play kitchen using parts of the ikea ivar storage system. [via windsor peak press message boards]

play kitchen“all in, the cost was $200 including all hardware, materials, and a special drill bit to sink the extra hinges on the fridge. the cabinet & tv cart are ivar from ikea, other wood parts are from michael’s and pearl art center. i’ll probably add shelves or hooks later but i couldn’t commit, so for now, the backsplash is bare.” link.

did you notice the “oven” with the pull-down glass door? it’s made from a photo frame! is that cool or what? thanks, heather, for the tip!

    cheap ikea photo frames usually have plastic in them anyway don’t they??

    Looks great. I echo concern about the glass oven door and would replace the glass with plastic of some sort.

    nicely done! i love the “sink” :)

    as a side note-the backsplash is made from the 2 short sides of a GRANKULLA footstool, if anyone is curious about those.
