Repurposed Ivar chair

Materials: Ivar chair, Ivar shelves, Bekvam shelves, cantilever

Description: I repurposed this Ikea Ivar chair as a playkitchen. Simply painted it, then fixed two shelves on the side of the chairs. For the sink, I used a plate, and for the tap, I fixed a piece from a walking stick. Finally, I added a Bekvam shelve for the top.
