Snowwhite playkitchen from Hungary

Materials: Grundtal rail, Grundtal S hook, Lansa handle, Panna black coaster, Svep knob

Description: Our two year old daughter was crazy about cooking and acting like a real cook lately. She was a great fan of the Ikea playkitchen, and although we thought it was very cool, it was a bit expensive for us. So we decided to make one for her just by ourselves. We never expected it would be so much fun to design it, collect all the accessories and for my husband Tamas to put it all together.

We used mostly Ikea stuff (brought back and faulty furniture pieces) and some other Ikea accessories.
Grundtal rail – Ikea
Grundtal S hook – Ikea
Lansa handle – Ikea
Panna black coaster – Ikea
Svep knob – Ikea
Chalkboard (Veneer paint with chalkboard paint)
Puck light – Lidl (works with batteries. When you push the middle it’s on)
The tap is an old used tap.
The sink is also an old metal bowl from my kitchen.
The mini kitchen’s equipment are also from Ikea’s Duktig series. We absolutely love them.

So this is our white Hungarian Ikea playkitchen. Hope you like it. Our little girl loves it, and we are very glad to see her beeing as happy as she is now with it.

    I don’t know what this person used for a base, but check out this post – used either Ikea Malm or Kullen night stands as base.

    I am also interested in how the base is made. Did you build it from scratch or was it an IKEA piece as well?
