Furusund play kitchen
Kim was inspired by this play kitchen and had to make one for her daughter.

She says, “I, also, started with the Vika Furusund shelf and figured out the rest as I went along. The fridge and oven handles are also from Ikea. Everything else is from Home Depot.”

    ADORABLE – I LOVE IT! I’m trying to hack your cute little pink kitchen and make one for my daughter! Did you turn the Furusund on its side? How did you make the oven and refrigerator? The front side looks so seamless…it’s perfect!

    Very cute! If I had a concern, it would be the edges/corners of the play kitchen. As long as kids know not to “run in the kitchen,” then the likelihood of them crashing their heads/bodies into the edges/corners of the unit is small.
