  5. Katie why couldn’t you use a corner table?

    Love this! Unfortunately it doesn’t look like we can get the Oddvar stool in the US. Back to the drawing board…

    Was für eine sensationelle Idee! Wir haben sie ein wenig geklaut, da Oddvar in unserem Keller dahin vegetierte. Jetzt kocht unser Sohn mit mir um die Wette. Von Herzen Dank für diese Idee und das Teilen mit der Welt der Ikea-Hacker!

    Thank you for your lovely comments :-)

    Dear Emma, I made the ovenboard of birch plywood (in german “Birken-Bastelholz”) – It´s really easy to cut.

    Die Herdplatten habe ich mit einer Schablone mit Edding vorgemalt und dann mit Lack und einem Pinsel vorsichtig ausgemalt. Das ging ganz gut!

    Liebe Verena,

    der Herd ist wunderwunderschön geworden!
    Wie hast Du es hinbekommen, dass die Herdplatten so exakt aufgemalt sind?

    Viele Grüße aus Stuttgart

    This piece is definitely one of the best IKEA hack I have found so far! Did you cut out MDF board to make the “oven” board? __Emma

    My 2 year old will love this. Not sure if the Oddvar could be too high for now, but it should be easy enough to shorten it a bit.
