    This is amazing and exactly what I want to do for my children. I agree – leaving the top flat is perfect. What I can’t work out is how/where to get the brilliant template provided printed? Can anyone advise me? J

    This is incredible! I’d probably put a Trofast wall storage unit over it with a rod and colorful curtains for “kitchen cabinets.” What I’d LOVE to see are instructions for taking a taller Trofast cabinet and making it a play fridge, even better if someone worked out what kitchen cabinet doors could be readily attached to the front of one so I could trawl through the As-Is section for it.

    Take a Lowe’s kids room three piece kitchen set and put Ikea trofast drawers with lids. Play kitchen and toy storage together.

    Leaving the top flat allows for play space for other things. Also, what a way to stimulate the child’s imagination, having to visualize running water, turning knobs and such. Well done.

    Would onl take a sec to add actual turning knobs from the hardware store, or a fax “sink” with a shallow plastic dish stuck to the top.

    The little one wants a kitchen, but we didn’t want to have the huge plastic kind to clutter everything up. this is an absolutely brilliant idea.
