Ohdeedoh reader, Beth, sent us an e-mail sharing a great little DIY kitchen she and her husband made for their son's birthday. Inspired by our post on building an kitchen with Ikea components
, she writes on her blog, "The original plan was to purchase a play kitchen for Jak's birthday. Because we have no room for it except along the back wall in our real kitchen, I didn't want a big crazy colored plastic one. Instead I wanted a nice wood kitchen. Cute, but affordable..."She continues
,"Wood or metal seemed my only alternatives, but I don't weld and we were facing a birthday deadline so carpentry didn't seem a feasible option. Then, I found this fabulous IKEA hack kitchen on Ohdeedoh. Winner!"
Using the Vattern sink cabinet, which Beth found on clearance for $9.99, along with scraps from the IKEA As-Is department and knobs from Target, they ended up spending $35 to make this lovely play kitchen.
