Play kitchen from Benno TV unit

Nadine made a play kitchen for her daughter, Katharina, over Christmas. Here it is.

“We wanted to make a kitchen for our daughter. The basic is a Benno TV. We used many things from Ikea – I do not know all the names but everybody who likes Ikea will know the things.

For example the washbasin and the cutlery drawer is a bath set we bought some time ago. We changed the left drawer and put a board on we bought and made it into the oven. The hotplates are cut from a trivet bought at Ikea. With some colour and sewing 4 towel from one Ikea towel the kitchen gets a very sweet style.

We are very proud of our first hack and our daughter loves to play with her own kitchen!”

    The kitchen TV which can install on the Ceiling is perfect. it will be easy to use and not take more space because it can be swivel and flip down!
