Ikea Hacks Itself

Dude, it's, like, so meta! Reader Kim was browsing Ikea's kitchen display section in Richmond (AU) when she spotted this mini kitchen they made nestled into a larger kitchen. "They've hacked themselves." she declared!

Perhaps all your own hacked Ikea kitchens has inspired a Richmond staffer to demonstrate how easy and affordable it is to make a play kitchen from their components. And it's certainly cheaper than their own Duktig kitchen (which Kim's son had fun playing with in the store nonetheless). We checked out our Brooklyn Ikea this weekend, but could find no such display of good hack humor - has anyone else seen this in their local Ikea?

Thanks for the fun find Kim! Kim has lots of fun things to read about on her blog Stella Cake (endearingly named after what her daughter Stella Cate used to think her name was) so visit and say hello. Don't forget to check out her daughter's terrific play kitchen, too.
