Ivar freestanding wine rack and cabinet

Christine’s mom is a hacker with chops. Here’s one of her creations.

“This freestanding kitchen unit is made with Ivar cabinets, and the sides/body of it are the wood from one of Ikea’s futons, not sure which. It is solid pine and stained a light blue/green. There is a wine rack at the bottom, and on the top is a rack for hanging wine glasses. Plus there’s storage from the Ivar cabinet. My mother continues to make Ikea hacks in her garage/studio in Los Angeles. In general, she keeps some and sells the rest of them.”

    For someone with this skill-level, Why use IKEA for materials? Pine lumber is fairly inexpensive.
